Christa is an upbeat, enthusiastic caller known for her clear, concise teaching and short walkthroughs. Her dance selection and smooth voice have delighted dancers across the West and Midwest. She loves to get folks of all experience levels moving, grooving and having fun.
Christa has been a regular contra dancer since 2001, when she fell in love with it at the Winterhawk bluegrass festival in Massachusetts. She especially enjoys the energy and community emphasis of contra dance. She called her first dance in 2012, when there was a 6-week beginner caller’s workshop in Missoula, MT, and has been calling regularly for over a year. She calls the occasional English Country or square dance, but her focus is contras. Her calling experience is literally all over the map; she's been a work gypsy for the past few years and makes a point of joining the dance and calling communities wherever she lives.
