Paul has been leading dances since 1986. He is known for his gentle but energetic, encouraging style, concise teaching, and sense of humor.
The programs Paul presents consist of community dances from all over the US, United Kingdom, Appalachia, as well as international folk dances from more than 50 countries and African-American singing games. Paul loves teaching traditional dances to youngsters (as a visiting artist) in schools and leading novices in community dances at festivals, weddings, family reunions, birthday parties, family dances, and other gatherings. Paul plays recorder and fiddle.
Paul gets his greatest satisfaction from enabling people who have never danced - especially the dance phobic - to not only get up and dance, but also to have a great time and come back for more! His enthusiasm for dance and empathy with novices comes from his avoidance-at-all-costs and terror of dancing until he discovered contra dancing at age 30.
