The web site of the Dubuque area Telegraph Herald newspaper, TH Online, covered the 2011 River City Square Dance, currently in its 13th year. The article included several quotes from organizer Bob Ellis, as well as from renowned caller Jerry Story.
Here’s an excerpt of the full article:
There was a feeling that the dance floor at the Dubuque County Fairgrounds on Saturday morning was the scene of a challenge; Story’s voice calling out movements was literally keeping people on their toes.
“It’s great exercise both mentally and physically because they have to keep their wits about them all the time, because it’s extemporaneous and they don’t know what I’m going to say,” said Story, who travels the country performing as a square dance caller.
