Steve began square dancing as a teenager with the rest of the neighborhood kids as they joined their parents at the Surrey Square Wheelers. He tried calling at a Goofers’ Night, and the rest, as they say, is history. As a member of the Wesburn Wranglers he won the Senior Champion at the Pacific Northwest Teen Square Dance Festival.
It is a particular pleasure to have later called for the Wesburn Wranglers for 18 years, as well as the Abbotsford Swinging Hubs, Lochdale, and Silver Saddles Square Dance Clubs. Presently Steve is still calling for the Royal Swingers (as he has for over 35 years) as well as the Surrey Square Wheelers, and the Abbotsford Swinging Hubs.
Square dancing has brought many opportunities to Steve and he has had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout North America, Sweden, and Japan. He has also called in San Jose, Costa Rica and Oslo, Norway. Currently, Steve is on the staff of Elite Records, based in Houston, Texas. Steve has been calling for over 35 years and wouldn’t change a thing.
Steve lives in Surrey, British Columbia with his wife of 28 years, Lynnette and their 23-year-old daughter Kristen. Steve loves hockey, and has spent a number of years helping and coaching Kristen’s hockey team, and appreciates the opportunity to play hockey with her during the summer. Steve also enjoys golfing, bike riding and kayaking with the whole family.
