Ken Pike - Board member

I started square dancing in June 1968 with the Swan Swingers Square Dance Club in the Swan Valley.

Over the next 10 years I danced with several clubs, until I joined the Callers Association of WA in late 1978.

In June 1981 I started the Drifters Square Dance Club, which ran for 28 years.

In 1982, I sat and passed my callers test to qualify as club caller

1985, I reopened Gidgee Square Dance Club that was in recess, the club is still active today.

Teaching new dancers has been the most enjoyable part of my role of calling, I have run numerous classes, including classes for our Square dance Society.

One highlight of my career was visiting the Calgary Stampede, and calling during their celebrations.

Positions held within the CAWA; President, vice President and currently serving my third term as Treasurer.
