Our Club Caller
Michael Braithwaite is our
club caller, known as "Mickey" in the square dance scene. Mickey lives
in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany and learned to square dance in 1981 at the
"Bavarian Stompers" in Augsburg. Mickey's first attempts as caller took
place in 1986; his actual career as club caller began in 1990 with the
"Yellow Rose Square Dance Club" in Augsburg.
Mickey is one of the few full time professional callers in Europe.
Only a handful are able to
make their living of it. Since 1989 he is a member of ECTA (European
Callers and Teachers Association e.V.) and since 1993 an accredited and
active member of CALLERLAB, which is the International Caller
COLORS OF THE WIND, a branch of the TSV-Gräfelfing.
