Madeleine Smith

Madeleine Smith is a popular dance caller who learned her art from some outstanding teachers, including Pat Shaw and Ethel Anderson for English country dancing and Sam Sherry and Pat Tracey for Lancashire clog.  This year Madeleine will be celebrating the centenary of Pat Shaw's birth.

She wants to inspire the callers of tomorrow to learn about our English traditions.  Madeleine co-ordinates all of the country dancing at Charles Dickens School, and a splendid job she does of it too.  .
