Dance Historian

David has always been interested in the history of the dances and has been involved in many projects documenting aspects of Dance History, including:

  1. A Hand for the Band
  2. Square Dance History Project
  3. Square Dance Hall of Fame
  4. Ted (Sannella) Talks
  5. Contra Dance Diaspora

Welcome! David Millstone started contra dancing in the early 1970s and has been calling dances for some 40 years. His monthly dance from 1980 to 2015 was with the band Northern Spy in Norwich, Vermont, one of America’s longest running contra dance series. With an American repertoire ranging from traditional New England chestnuts to high-energy recent compositions, he calls contras, squares, and interesting dances in odd formations. He is an experienced caller of English country dances, and he also enjoys calling for family dances, weddings and other special events. 

David is known for his clear and supportive teaching style, the breadth of his repertoire, his sense of humor, and his ability to pick dances that offer the right level of challenge for all audiences.
