Just curious: which word does "English"
attach to? I.e., is it:
an English association for callers of dance or
an association for English callers of dance or
an association for callers of English dance ?
A fair question!
It's predominantly an English association, though Judith De Witt is American and Hazel
Moir is Welsh.
It's aimed at callers in dance clubs in England, who may or may not be English - at
The Round in Cambridge we've recently had
American, Dutch, German and probably other nationalities of caller.
It's not English dance as North Americans conceive it. Callers at dance clubs in
England may call Playford-style, traditional
English (ceilidh) style, Scottish, Welsh, International, American Squares and Contras.
