Hi, I’m Drew.

I’m an ECD and contra dance caller based in Toronto, Canada.

Hello, and welcome!

An incredible sense of joy is what brought me to contra dance. When the music is in full swing, and the dance floor is in motion, I grin ear to ear. I can’t help myself.

It’s an honor to share that unbridled joy with others, as a contra dance caller. I am grateful for the incredible support, from my mentors George Marshall and Judy Greenhill, to those near and far who are inviting me to their dances.

I travel extensively throughout North America. Ask me when I’m coming to a location near you.

Calls for a Cause

I donate 100% of any calling fees.

It started with the pandemic: for virtual dances. I donated my calling fees back into the pool for the musicians, who were having a particularly challenging time. And I’ve decided to keep that as we emerged back to contra as we know it.

For in person dances, I am happy to donate back to the organization, or to a community charity of our mutual choice.
