The Friends of Cecil Sharp House are pleased to announce our second Positional Calling
Workshop, led by Louise Siddons, on 14 November 2020 at 7 pm UK time (2pm Eastern, 11am
The first workshop, which focused on English country dance calling, was recorded and is
available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGowupPiIig
This second workshop is intended to introduce participants to positional calling for
contra dancing. Discover how the skills you already cultivate as a caller can be enhanced
by positional thinking, teaching and calling — and learn how to use those skills to create
a more welcoming, inclusive atmosphere at your dances. This workshop will be
participatory rather than prescriptive, although Louise will introduce the strategies that
she uses in her own teaching and calling as helpful starting points. Louise has been
calling both contra and ECD positionally since 2017 in both the US and the UK.
If you wish to attend this workshop, please register your interest by sending a brief
email to judith(a)fcsh.org.uk.
Louise is waiving her fees and costs in organising these sessions, and would like AKT to
benefit from her efforts and your generosity. You can make a contribution online at
. Thank you.
Louise Siddons, dance caller
