Of course it is the first one who taught you square dancing. So that would be Len Jannaway, of Basildon Essex, UK.

Running a close second would be the late Tommy Cavanagh of the Lister Square Dance Club.

Others way up there are Pete Sansom and Robin Rumble.

Feel free to add your own choices.

John Chapman, Colin Hume, Ralph Meakin (who introduced us to modern squares one year at Whitby and brought some very helpful members of his club to get us through), Geoff Cubbitt.
We went to Ranch House Squares in Wythenshawe for a couple of years with Trevor Day. No sign of them on Google.
Whitby also had Culver Griffin one year (his tour company went bust while he was here - before the days when they all propped each other up)

Bonny MacDonald called for many years for dances fiddled by Winston "Scotty" Fitzgerald. It's hard to surpass that!

Then there is Chris Vear, and Wally Spratt. And who was that English style caller who was with the YHA in the late Fifties, Early Sixties, I remember him from High Roding and Maldon Youth Hostels.

IMHO, the late Bernard Chalk. Memorial dance in London tonight (called by Mark Elvins, another candidate) and I shan't be able to get to it - grrr!

On this side of the pond, I have to cast my vote for Bugs Bunny in Hillbilly Hare.

You be the judge.

I'm surprised there's so much interest in square dance here. I thought it would be 90 percent contra dance and 10 percent square dance. I learned square dance in fourth grade, and haven't done it since.
On the West Coast of the U.S., I think the best-known contra dance caller is Eric Hoffman. He's a nice guy, too.
