Title

Les Gotcher - callers' class

Subject

Description

This recording comes from the collection of Stig Malmo. It has some gaps, which you may notice when the audio jumps from one thing to another, but as the contributor notes, this gives you a good glimpse into the mind of one inflential caller.

Gotcher and Ed Gilmore represented two very different approaches to square dance calling, dancing, and leadership. You may be interested in comparing Gotcher's approach here with Gilmore's 1949 syllabus for his Square Dance Instructors Course or his comments at a gathering of callers in 1962. That length audio file is presented in four parts; here is a link to the first segment.
