Gene originally hails from St. Louis, Missouri, USA and has resided in Yorkshire, England since early 1980. Gene and his wife Sandra, learned to square dance in 1986 and eventually danced through A2 before dropping the advanced dancing in favour of the FUN programs Basic through Plus.
Gene started calling about 1992 and at that time called through A2. He now concentrates on calling new dancer dances and hoedowns as well as evenings at Harmony Squares where he shares the stage with his friend Cliff Anderton calling CALLERLAB Basic, Mainstream and Plus programs. Gene considers the recruitment of new dancers the highest priority of our activity today.
