This weekend’s caller, our own Angela DeCarlis, hails from Melrose but her career as a caller reaches far afield, from as far north as Portland, Maine, as far south as Cocoa Beach, Florida, and as far west as Salt Lake City, Utah. Angela also designed and painted our distinctive Dancing Fish banner logo.

Dancing Fish logo 200“Because I am an artist with a passion for teaching, I approach dance instruction with kindness, creativity, and ingenuity. Because I am a jazz singer, I love to incorporate musical tonality into my vocals while at the mic, resulting in a calling style immediately recognizable and lovable to dancers everywhere.”

  • Everest Witman
