Next Dance Weekend

Trailblazers invite you to a weekend of
Advanced & Challenge Square Dancing with:
Bill Haynes
"Smile, you're having a good time."

September 4-5, 2021

Saturday C1 - A2 / Sunday C2 - C3A (last tip C3B)

Bill Haynes of Gilbert, Arizona has been calling for Trailblazers since December 1996 and has returned many times. Our dancers have always appreciated the consistent challenges Bill has presented during his visits. Whether Bill is calling for his home program in Mesa, Arizona or at any other event even if the attendance includes just a few squares or many squares, his calling is never altered or diminished - it's always Bill at his finest.

Bill was born in Texas and moved to New Mexico in 1957. Upon completion of basic square dance lessons in 1959, he danced for two years before beginning his calling career when he taught his first class. Ever since Bill has been pursuing square dance calling and promotion of the activity.

Bill taught school for a short time before fulfilling his Army ROTC military obligation by serving as a Platoon Leader in Korea for 2 years. He returned to Las Cruces, New Mexico in 1971 to resume both his teaching and calling careers. While teaching school, he earned a Master in Education Administration.

His calling ranges from Basic through C3B.

Bill has attended several caller seminars with Bob Fisk, Melton Luttrell, Marshal Flippo, all of whom are well known callers. He has been the featured caller at many festivals in the United States and has an especially good following in the Southwestern states - Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah. In 1984 Bill moved to Mesa to open up a new RV park, Carriage Manor.

From November through March Bill sponsors a full-time A2 through C3B Square Dance program called the Mesa, Arizona Challenge Dancing. Many Square Dancers including some of your fellow Trailblazers and friends have benefitted from their participation in this program and have returned for more than one season. Check it out at

Bill is an American Callers Association member.
