I’m really pleased to be able to share an article that I wrote recently for the English Dance and Song Magazine. I’ve been thinking a lot about respect on and off the dance floor at events that I’ve called at recently, and how to be as inclusive as possible whilst making sure that no-one feels pressured or harassed. I’m not perfect, but I’m always learning and looking for ways to improve my calling. I hope dancers, organisers and callers will find my thoughts helpful – and I’m always willing to hear other people’s opinions so get in touch if you’d like to share ideas!
Many thanks to all those who I’ve had conversations with about this over the past year, who proofread the article, and who allowed me to use their photos.
