To begin, a little about your host and hostess for this home page.
Sadly, Don passed away March 26, 2011. Don was a square dance caller/instructor and was also the producer/owner of Circle D Records. After recording for Silver Sounds Records for eight years, Don made the jump and purchased Circle D/A-Bar-K Records. You can listen to clips of all Circle D and A-Bar-K releases by clicking our distributor's link at the bottom of the Circle D page, including music for our own Line Dance, called Raunchy. Don also taught line dances along with Patti. Patti is, of course, the woman behind the caller. Don called and taught square dancing for 37 years and square dancing for 39 years. Patti has been square dancing for 34 years. Both round danced for 17 years and line danced for 16 years.
Don loved doing party nights for people who have never square danced.
Read all about what square dancing is today. Square Dancing today is a New Song and Dance Routine. It's probably not what you think of it as being.
