Karen Jackson loves to dance, and loves to share the experience. She has been teaching and calling contra dances, English Country dances, square dances, and barn dances for special events across the Midwest for several years.

Besides regular local and regional contra dances, her calling includes school groups, weddings, private parties, home schoolers, corporate events, and even dances in real barns!

This site contains examples and descriptions to make it easier to understand what she does, and how to obtain her services.
