Ceilidh Caller with humour!

Dan has worked as the resident caller for the Burdock Band for over 10 years. His repertoire of dances is global, drawing on any tradition where fun is key and getting it wrong doesn't matter. "We've danced at the smallest venue - someone's front room - to the largest - Iceland's big family bash, so the aim is always the same: to get your guests mingling together up on their feet having fun". He also works with other bands and does solo performances using digital playlists, so it's worth asking him if he's available. Dan also runs Barn Dance Fitness in South Birmingham: ", an enjoyable, social way to get fit together".

Having the band out on the lawn on a summer evening orchestrating the dancing brought everyone together, the musicians were fantastic and Dan put everyone at ease, was humorous, charismatic and was the driving force to a great fun and friendly atmosphere. A great icebreaker and really memorable. All of our guests young and old said how much they enjoyed it, from the very young to the more mature. They fulfilled everything that we hoped for.
