general info
Explore southern sytle square dances with nationally renowned caller Phil Jamison. His knowledge and love of square dance is extensive and interesting.
Phil Jamison is a founder of the Dare To Be Square dance weekends. He has called dances, performed, and taught at music festivals throughout the U.S. and overseas since the early 1970s. Over the last thirty years, Phil has done extensive research in the area of Appalachian dance, and his recently-published book Hoedowns, Reels, and Frolics: Roots and Branches of Southern Appalachian Dance (University of Illinois Press, 2015) tells the story behind the square dances, step dances, reels, and other forms of dance practiced in southern Appalachia. Phil teaches mathematics as well as Appalachian music and dance at Warren Wilson College, in Asheville, North Carolina, where he also coordinates the Old-Time Music and Dance Week at the Swannanoa Gathering.
