About My Business:


Whether it’s a Church Social, Barn Dance, community picnic, youth club activity, or school function - Dancing is Fun for Everyone, Set to Music! Carl Ballou grew up in a folk dancing family. His love of dance and his enthusiasm for fun, family-oriented activities led him to specialize in programs for groups that have no previous dance experience. His goal is to introduce everyone to a fun, old-time family-oriented experience that America grew up with, before TV and the internet. For his two hour programs, Carl uses a wireless microphone and demonstrates all dances in the center of the floor, making sure everyone is participating. Each new dance builds on the previous dance skills, and he varies the program based on each group’s ability. Basic polka, contra, barn dance, and big circle figures are introduced, with squares, couples, progressive (mixer), and non-partner dances included throughout the program. There are 2 short breaks for refreshments and announcements, and the dancing commences with fun novelty dances such as the Hokey Pokey, Macarena, and the Chicken Dance. The festivities finish with the traditional Virginia Reel.
