Steve Edlund Caller
Steve began square dancing as a teenager with the rest of the neighbourhood kids as they joined their parents at the Surrey Square Wheelers. He tried calling at an Amateur Night, and the rest, as they say, is history. As a teen he won Senior Champion at the Pacific Northwest Teen Square Dance Festival.
Steve enjoyed calling for the Wesburn Wranglers for 18 years, as well Lochdale and Silver Saddles Square Dance Clubs. Presently Steve is calling for the Royal City Dancers (as he has for the past 40 years) as well as the Surrey Square Wheelers, Swinging Hubs and the Abbotsford Grand Squares. Steve’s program involves SSD through to A2.
Square dancing has brought many opportunities to Steve and he has had the opportunity to travel and call extensively throughout North America, Sweden, Japan and Germany. Currently, Steve is calling on Riverboat Records out of California.
Steve and Lynnette have been married for 37 years, and live in Surrey, BC. Their daughter Kristen and son-in-law Chris live close by in Langley. Steve and Lynnette are fortunate to get to see them and their delightful 2 year old granddaughter often. Outside of square dancing, Steve and Lynnette lead an active life biking, kayaking, golfing, and traveling.
