From the Floor
Dancers -- you NEVER want to miss an opportunity to workshop (or dance) to Jerry Story. It does not matter (although it is awesome information) that Jerry is an 'original issue' Fairfielder, and proud of it. What matters is that Jerry has more square dance experience and knowledge than any caller out there today.
Jerry 'studies' the science and math of square dancing. His workshops are dancing proof of his canny ability to turn a mainstream or plus call into a beautifully artistic move. After Jerry's workshop the murmuring within the square is, "WOW - I love that!"
Don't even think about missing his workshop. I won't even encourage you to attend his dance; because if you attend his workshop, there is nothing that will keep you from attending his dance! SO -- if there is a 'bargain' price for attending both -- you best be taking advantage!
Yes, it is the 4th of July weekend -- and it is the FIRECRACKER that will solidify your holiday! My guess is we will hear Jerry call "Independence Day" and it will ROCK! ~ JR
