Dave Schulz has been a square dance caller for over 40 years. He was first introduced to square dancing as part of his college curriculum for Physical Education and Health at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse, in the early 70’s. He started his own college square dance club along with a club for Senior Citizens where he began his calling career.
Dave attended Caller’s College in Indiana and began to travel throughout the Midwest calling for clubs in Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota and Illinois. In 1976 following his college graduation, he moved to Davenport Iowa to become an elementary school physical education teacher and Vice Principal. Dave became the club caller for a singles club that still exists today. In his spare time, he was calling 15-20 nights/month throughout the Midwest.
1986 found Dave returning to calling. He became club caller for the Diamond Squares of Deforest, WI. Dave taught lessons and continued to call around the Midwest until 1996 when family and business became his focus. He took a hiatus from calling until 2010 when he and Betsy, with four wonderful children raised and the business thriving, returned to calling and dancing.
Today Dave can be found enthusiastically calling, teaching and promoting square dancing around the state.
From the floor:
Dave Schulz --- NOT your 'run of the mill' square dance caller.
Dancers -- you have come to the realization, I am sure, that square dancers callers are all pretty darn nice people. They like to sing; they like to call; they enjoy the laughter, the friendship and the interaction with the dancers. Looking farther into dance, most square dancers are pretty much the same - although our singing and calling abilities may leave something to be desired, we are, as a whole, caring people - loving life and what dance brings to it. On occasion you have an opportunity to have an EXCEPTIONAL caller --
SO, if you want to dance to one of the best, most caring, nicest callers out there - you MUST make time to dance to Dave Schulz in Fairfield on Sunday, June 1st at the Fairfield Fairgrounds.
Dave uses ALL venues of music - he works the entire mainstream (and Plus if you are dancing Plus) syllabus into his tips -- you will not hear any given call over and over. His delivery is top notch and he cares - he truly cares that you are having fun. He will workshop your toes off and then he will let you fly with the result -- it is a drug free/alcohol free/ smoke free "high" --- don't miss it! ~ JR
