Bob Isaacs & Janet Shepherd call to Kingfisher + Reelplay

Callers Janet Shepherd and Bob Isaacs
Callers Janet Shepherd and Bob Isaacs shared the stage at The Dancing Fish’s Fourth of July Weekend, 1-3 July 2022.

Bob Isaacs, from Princeton NJ, squares the circles and lines up the dots with his delightful dance compositions.

A prolific choreographer of creative dances, Bob is famous for his clear calling of flowing contras and amazing hot grid squares. He is a prolific contra choreographer and his creative dances are called throughout the country.

Caller Janet Shepherd began calling shortly after moving to Atlanta in 1990, and has been a mainstay there ever since. With smooth walk-throughs, infectious humor and a dash of southern charm she has delighted dancers throughout the Southeast and states beyond. Whether with zippy contras, rowdy squares, or quirky odd formations, she is always brewing up fun for every crowd.
