Wasatch Wiggle Contra Dance Weekend

Utah, Dance Lessons

Music by Great Bear Trio (New York), calling Susan Michaels (California). Susan is a teacher and a caller of traditional American dancing, especially contra dancing and square dancing. She has called and taught dances at local evenings, weekend workshops, week-long elementary school programs, week-long family camps, and dance weekends throughout the U.S. and Canada. Susan believes her “calling” in life is to teach people how to hold hands in a circle. She specializes in creating joy, making community, and allowing everyone with whom she comes into contact to experience the pure pleasure of dance.
