Next Dance Weekend

Trailblazers invites you to an inspiring, friendly
weekend of Advanced & Challenge Square Dancing.

Saturday / Sunday

April 6-7, 2019

Rob French 

Rob began square dancing with the Stanford Quads in 1990. He was joined by his wife, CJ Smith, the following year. In 1992 they both took their first caller's school from Bill Davis and Kip Garvey. Since then, Rob has taught classes at all levels from Mainstream through C3A, and for many years called or co-called for several local C1 and C2 clubs. Due to an increasingly busy lifestyle, he currently has no regular clubs, but instead travels to call weekends around the globe. He has called in a dozen U.S. states, Canada, Germany, Japan and Sweden. Rob specializes in C3B and C4 weekends, but is known at all levels for fast, difficult, but quite danceable material.

Rob first called in southern California at the PACE Extravaganza trail-in dance in 1994. Rob has called for Trailblazers dances many time since 2000.

Rob has a Masters degree in Astronomy. When not Square Dancing or calling, Rob keeps busy researching the rings and moons of the outer planets for SETI Institute, an organization that conducts scientific research on Life in the Universe with an emphasis on the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence.  Rob is also an aircraft pilot and instructor.

He lives with CJ and three cats in Sunnyvale, California.

As a way to thank you for bringing new full-level dancers to a Trailblazers dance who have not been to Trailblazers before, you'll get a free pass for one (1) Trailblazers Square Dance session.

We look forward to sharing a dance or more with you.
