Callers

Our callers help lead the dancers with fun and interesting dances that they’ve researched.

Some of our standard repertoire include the “Heartbeat Contra,” “A Nice Combination” by Gene Hubert, and “Airpants.”

Meet our lead caller: Morgan White

Morgan started dancing and teaching various folk dances in 2010 when she joined her local Border Morris team, Caprock Morris. She danced with the Texas Tech Set Dancers from 2011-2018 as well as danced and sang with the TTU Celtic Ensemble from 2010-2018.

Since then she has attended Pinewoods, BACDS Fall Frolick, FolkMADS, and nearby dance weekends to learn how to be a better dancer and caller. She started calling for Hub City Contra in 2017.

We do encourage guest calling and have had a few guest callers! If you are interested in guest calling, please email our Lead Caller, Morgan White at hubcitycontra@gmail.com.
