The first hint of autumn is in the air and the square dance community of Central Ohio is gearing up to start another round of fall classes. If you are at all interested in Modern Western Square Dancing, now is the time to take action. Square and Round Dance classes normally start in September and run through the Spring. In that time, you'll learn all the moves required to dance at the Plus level (the most popular dance level in square dancing) anywhere in the world. As you learn, you'll be invited to participate in Hi/Low dances with our local clubs, where alternating tips are called at a level appropriate to where the classes are at that point on the learning curve. So, why not check out the offerings on our Workshops & Classes page and get personally involved in this fun and invigorating pastime.
Sheila Terhune of Mooresville, IN, calls Mainstream through Plus. She has been calling since September, 2010. She is a member of CALLERLAB and is BMI and ASCAP licensed. She is also a member of the Indiana Dance Leaders Association (IDLA) and Indiana Dancers Association (IDA). Her philosophy is, "Do what you like, like what you do, and have FUN doing it!"
Sheila grew up on the west side of Indianapolis, graduating from St Agnes Academy in 1970. While in school, Sheila learned to play the accordion, piano, and guitar. She also studied voice, which proved to be wonderful training for her future in calling.
After graduating, Sheila went to work as a drafter inthe Engineering Department at Indiana Bell (a part of AT&T) where she worked for 30 years. During those years, she met and married her husband, Conard, and raised a family of five children.
She also continued to pursue her love of music by participating in the Indiana Bell Choir. Children raised, and now with 12 grandchildren being welcomed into the family, Sheila retired from her job, and she and Conard took square dance lessons under the tutelage of Larry Weekley. Upon graduating, they joined the Laughing Squares Dance Club in Indianapolis, IN. She caught the calling bug at the National Square Dance Convention in 2010. Watching the caller have so much fun moving the dancers around the floor, Sheila thought, "I can do that!" She confesses that she had "no idea how hard it was!" She started her caller training in 2010.
Sheila is currently a Co-Club-Caller for Yellow Rockin' Squares in Scottsburg, IN.
