Karen was engaged to call the dance at the Fayette, Ohio’s Thistle Ridge Civil War reenactment. I cannot say that Karen did an unusually extraordinarily good job because her usual is extraordinary. She has an excitement to her that she projects and that makes it difficult for anyone who enjoys dancing to stay sitting. Her vibrant personality spreads through the crowd getting even spectators involved. I have heard from a number of people, both spectators and participants, that they return to events year after year largely because of the dances that she calls. One lady in our group said that she would be traveling all the way to Fremont, Ohio in large part because Karen will be calling the dance there. That will be about a five-hour drive for her...Personally, I always look forward to events where I know Karen is calling because I know that all will have a great time.

Thank you so much for coming to our Girl Scout banquet! You were awesome! ... I really like the way that square dancing gives the dancers the opportunity to interact with other dancers, besides their own partner or troop. I got great feedback from everyone and we all really enjoyed your entertainment and teaching. Thanks again!
--Barb Huneau, Utica
I just wanted to send a great big thank you to all of you for a very nice evening. All I had was great comments on the band and how it was very easy to dance with the caller. I had a great time and so did all the people at the Ball. Thanks again and I hope to see you soon.

I have never had any qualms about recommending you. I've heard positive feedback from everyone about your professionalism and that you deliver what they wanted: fun!

I like your style in getting people up and dancing.

Last year was my first time to that (Civil War Valentine's) ball. I had so much fun both times and it is nice to know that I can easily dance the dances I don't know. There was a girl with us whose first Civil War experience was this ball and I know that a large part of why she enjoyed it so much was that the dances were easy to learn and that is thanks to you. So thank you again. --Melissa Hunt, Cedarville, Ohio
