Darrin Henry started dancing in 1975, and began calling in 1980 at the age of 15. He danced originally with his mom Betty who later became a round dance cuer.
Darrin met his wife Tammy at his mom’s square dance attire shop when his mother volunteered him to be her partner for square dance lessons. Darrin and Tammy celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary in October and have been dancing together for 35 years.
Darrin is the club caller for the Madison County Promenaders and Footloose Dancers, in Anderson, Indiana, and the Quakertown Shakers in Plainfield. He belongs to the Indiana Dance Leaders Association where he has served in many roles, including President. He has been a Callerlab member his entire calling career. He is BMI and ASCAP licensed.
Darrin calls throughout Indiana, eastern Illinois, western Ohio, and Kentucky, and is a regular caller at the Indiana Square and Round Dance Convention. Darrin teaches Basic through A2 and calls dances almost every weekend that he and Tammy are not spending time on their houseboat in Tennessee.
