Dave Winston has been dancing and calling contras for many years.
He was introduced to contra dancing in the Washington, D.C. area by an excellent teacher (and future wife) Juliette, and a few years later took his first calling workshop from Tom Hinds.
David strives to connect with all levels of dancers through his clear teaching and steady calling. He is always willing to help new dancers learn basic skills, feel comfortable, and enjoy the contra dancing experience.
When he's not dancing or enjoying the outdoors, he works from his home office in Asheville as a senior software engineer for IBM.
He has taught at Jonesborough with Crooked Pine, Harvest Moon with Skeeziks, and OFB Advanced Dance with Spin Cycle.
