Anne's relaxed style and easy listening voice have won her
many square dance friends at all the dancing levels and from
all corners of the world.
Anne was born and grew up in Peterborough, Ontario of
Scottish parents and as a child Anne knew nothing of
square dancing. After she finished high school her parents
took square-dancing lessons. When a local Mainstream caller
was having a weekend dancing campout that her parents were
planning to attend, they invited Anne to come along to swim,
enjoy the outdoors, or whatever since she had no specific
plans for that weekend. It turned out that the dance was one
dancer short of an additional square and Anne was drafted to
fill in. After three days and a lot of push, pull, and shove,
she was dancing (almost at Plus level) - and she was hooked!
Anne then continued dancing at a local Mainstream club and
enjoyed it immensely. She soon realized that there's a lot
more to square dancing than she had ever dreamed, and thought,
"This is for me!"
Anne resides in Auburn, Washington with her wife Mary
Hutchinson and their four cats.
