Next Dance Weekend
Page updated: January 7, 2019

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

Saturday / Sunday

February  2-3, 2019

Ben Rubright 

Ben Rubright, a long-time favorite of Trailblazers has always had a philosophy of fast-moving calling, smooth body motion, and unmistakable “wind-in-your-face” choreography that keeps dancers on their toes from Mainstream through C4. He spurs dancers on to smooth dancing to the rhythm of the band wherever he calls.

Ben began dancing in the fall of 1976 and soon became fascinated by how a caller could put together material and make a square of dancers move to the beat of the music. He started experimenting with calling in 1977, and the rest is history! He strives to put calls together that fit, and his dancers always reflect this goal. He is an accomplished caller, and has been on the staff of various Advanced and Challenge Conventions as well as numerous Festival weekends throughout the US, Japan, and Europe.
