Dale Smith

Square Dance Caller

Dale Smith began calling in 1976 while stationed in Okinawa, Japan with the United States Army.  In addition to Japan, Dale has called dances in five European countries along with Hawaii, Alabama, South Carolina and his home state, Texas.  

He moved to the heart of Texas area in 1983 and started calling for the Central Texas Lone Stars.  In the summer of 2002, Dale suspended his square dance activities due to deployments to the Middle East with the 1st Cavalry Division, Fort Hood, Texas.  He resumed calling after retiring from the Department of the Army in December 2012.

Dale is a member of CALLERLAB,  Texas State Callers Association,  H.O.T. Callers Association, and East Texas Callers Association.  Presently, Dale serves as Treasurer for Texas State  Callers Association.  He also calls for Texas Independent Plus Squares (TIPS),  HOT Camping Squares, and Undergound A's.  Dale has been a guest caller for several events with  Texas State Federation of Square and Round Dancers Festivals and Texas Association of Single Square Dancers.

Dale currently resides in Gholson, Texas with his wife, Pamela, whom he taught to square dance in 1995.  Dale and Pamela attend Gholson First Baptist Church where he enjoys singing tenor in the choir.  One of Dale Smith's great joys is helping folks enjoy square dancing.  He uses his talent to teach new students to dance and  works with experienced dancers to fine tune their square dance skills.  His friendliness, energy and love of the square dance abounds at every dance he calls.
