Curt began dancing in

1972 and didn’t catch

the calling bug until

1985. Once he started,

it didn’t take long

before his calling took off.  A dancer once said about Curt - “He takes the same old call and makes it look different while keeping a smooth flowing dance”, That’s one of the best compliments I’ve ever received said Curt who always strives to give the dancers a challenge, yet let the dancers enjoy the “dance”.
