GSI UK Organising Team - GSI UK Festival and Caller School 2007, 2009 & 2014

Simon & Susie Kelly - Susie started square dancing in 1953 at a club in North London.

 

Simon was introduced to Square Dancing in April 1967 and fifteen months later was persuaded to join the Square Dance Callers Club of Great Britain (SDCCGB).  Simon served as the Membership Officer for the SDDCCGB from 1970 through 1975 and again from 1991 through 2003.

 

Susie picked up a microphone at Christmas 1983 and started calling.  She was asked to call for a club in Romford at Christmas of 1985 and another club at Hemel Hempstead in 1986.  Susie became the librarian for the SDCCGB in 1986 and secretary of the Callers Club, 1987 through 2005 and again 2007 through the present.

 

In 1986 Simon was asked to start a club in Milton Keynes.  That club became New City Squares.  Susie and Simon are now running two groups within that club.

 

Susie started calling for the University of the Third Age in Buckingham in 1999 then in 2003 formed a second, evening, Club in Buckingham.

 

Simon and Susie currently call six times a week for a changing variety of groups from Basic through to C1 as well as one night parties.  They also lead a callers practice group in their area.

 

Simon & Susie were also on the organizing team for the very successful GSI UK Festivals and Caller Schools in 2007 and 2009.
