Bring the family along for this all-ages family dance! Neal Schlein will be our caller and the Thursday Night Lincoln Square Jam group will provide the music.
A children’s librarian and transplant from Colorado, Neal loves sharing his dances with everyone–children, beginners, and experienced dancers alike. His calling features traditional rhyming patter drawn from the old west, a sense of humor, and a great deal of enthusiasm. Born to parents who met at a college folk dance (think Roseville Faire, by Bill Staines!), he grew up enjoying a wide assortment of dance traditions and began calling in 1998 as a high school project. Today Neal calls squares, contras, and a smattering of other things, but his absolute favorite dance is always the one he’s sharing with you right now.
