Observations from the floor

Every dancer (new and seasoned) will have the opportunity (and should most certainly seize that opoprtunity) to dance to Dave Sutter in Fairfield on September 28th.   


His presentation is superb (the whole package -- his music, his voice and his style of calling).  He can 'light you up" to the extent that you feel that you should refuse to leave the dance floor because you are just having too much fun (high-energy stuff!); and then he will throw in a song that will make you feel as though you have been graced by a loving lullabye.    


His 'highs and lows' (tremendous variety) make for a great time.  Don't miss him - whatever you do!  ~ JR


Dave Sutter

Since 1964 Dave has been calling for the dancers of Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin and his wife Bev has been cueing rounds since 1982.


They have been producers for the Annual Spring and Fall Hoedowns held in Dubuque for the last 19 years and have been programming chairpersons for four of the Iowa State Conventions held in Dubuque.  Both are members of Callerlab and have received recognition for over ‘25 years of Calling and Contributing to Square Dancing’.


At the 2000 Iowa State Convention, Dave was named a recipient of Iowa’s Caller & Cuer Hall of Fame Award.


Dave calls nine to eleven dances per month and two sets of mainstream lessons and plus workshops every week from September through March in Dubuque and Maquoketa, Iowa. They take their summers off to avoid caller burn-out and spend time with their children and grandchildren.
