Erik Weberg


Erik Weberg has been calling contra dances since 1990. He summarizes his philosophy this way: “I choose dances based on simple criteria. They have to feel good and they have to be fun. Complexity does not necessarily translate into dancing pleasure. Flow, interesting figures, and connection with the music are what make dancing sublime. Whether it’s smooth like butter or driving like a freight train, it’s got to make sense and feel good. Those are the dances I choose to call. I work to teach efficiently and clearly, and often I succeed.”
