**ABOUT LOU MAIURI**
93 year old Lou Maiuri is West Virginia’s oldest professional old time square dance caller, an award-winning clogger, a world-renowned master flatfooter, a certified instructor and judge. He has been an ambassador for the Appalachian clogging and flatfoot styles, and old time dance and he has an awesome calling rhythm and vocabulary of calls and patter (phrases that add flavor to the calls).
**ABOUT LP KELLY**
LP Kelly has been teaching and calling traditional dances throughout the southern Appalachian mountains for over a decade. As one of the core organizers of the Blacksburg Square Dance (one of the longest-running traditional square dances in the country), he has had the opportunity both to learn from the old masters and to mentor younger callers.
His teaching style is concise and efficient; his calling style is musical and high-energy. Because if you’re having a good time, you’re doing it right!
