Philippe Callens (B)
Philippe is known internationally as a leader for English Country dances. Philippe started folk dancing in 1975 in his home town of Antwerp, Belgium, and has steadily gained a reputation as a leader of country dance who can easily combine high quality dance with the dancers’ personal enjoyment. Other fields of his dance interests include dance history. Philippe is also a prolific choreographer.

Frances Oates (UK)
Frances began folk dancing as a teenager dancing with clubs all over Cornwall. A few years later she started calling. Since then she has called for barn dances, dance clubs, Christenings, Weddings, and Wakes as well as at Festivals and residential weekends.
She is the resident caller at Illogan Folk Dance Club and also calls on a rota basis at Truro Folk Dance Club as well as travelling further afield to call for clubs out of county.
She enjoys dancing and calling English/Playford and American styles and firmly believes that dancing should be fun and that it is the best way to keep fit, both mentally and physically.
Frances organises the North Devon Folk Dance weekend held annually in October. She also is the Minutes Secretary for the Halsway Board of Directors at Halsway Manor in Somerset, which is the national residential centre for folk arts.

Music by "The New Ramblers". The young musicians Rahmat Emonds (violin), Dries De Maeyer (recorder), Joris Leemans (accordion) and Tim Wuyts (guitar) studied at the Borgerhout music academy. At the weekend they will play in different combinations. For some sessions they will be accompanied by their former teacher Ellen Delahanty (piano) .
