Trying to catch up on all this discussion!
I don't know if anyone's mentioned but CDSS has recently sent out a few
messages trying to connect with callers who are working in French and/or
Spanish in addition to English. It's probably worth touching base with

Do you know this caller? I've wanted to dance to her ever since I stumbled
across this video snippet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V28zWsX3lWc
But I don't travel to dance much these days, and AFAIK she has not been out
this way. This is a square, but there's no reason you couldn't do contras

As I am one of the organizers (and local callers) for the contra in
Montreal this is something I'd like to get into at one point. I have
several things over the years: that someone was
explaining the figures in
French but calling in English but also that someone had gone through the
trouble or finding translations that worked for some figures. has anyone
this list tried calling in French or if you now
someone who has and could
put me in contact with them. I'd rather not go through the time of
these things out if someone has already done it!
