Square Dancing for Everyone

Biography of a Caller

I am Donn Thomson, a full time Square Dance Caller. I began calling when I was 17 years old, continued calling during my ten and a half years of Air Force service, and worked for several Hobby Dancing Square Dance clubs during my 25 years of residence in Silicon Valley. As the years have passed, my passion for this activity has only grown.

I would love to show you how to have fun Square Dancing. During my years in the Silicon Valley, I honed my skills as a Square Dance Club Caller and a One Night Dance Party caller. I have focused on, and learned very well, how to entertain folks who have never Square Danced or even been on a dance floor.

I have shared this magical activity with youth, singles, couples, seniors, and even non-English speakers. I enjoy working with live music, can handle challenging venues, and realize that every event is unique. My sole objective is to help people have fun.

As a member of Callerlab, the U.S. based International Association of Square Dance Callers, I am licensed by BMI and ASCAP to use copyrighted music arranged for Square Dancing. I am insured with a 2 million dollar liability policy through Callerlab. I am a resident of Paradise, California and belong to the Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce.

I am fortunate to have a masterful partner in this profession named Gerri. While I'm behind the mic, she is among the dancers. Working as a team, we provide our customers with professional, high value entertainment and a social party experience you just can't get with other dance forms. We are convinced of it! Give us 20 minutes and we'll prove it!
