Jean Gorrindo hails from the Central Coast of California, living in a little coastal town near San Luis Obispo called Los Osos. She began calling quite some time ago at the encouragement of Jim and Amber Mueller of the Growling Old Geezers, Arroyo Grande, and MIchael Gutin of Santa Barbara. A few years ago she extended her calling sphere and started branching out to other dances in California. The more she called, the more she really liked it and got better at it, and now she is calling for dances all over the US!! In August of 2013 she called for Camp DAMP in Juneau, AK - her first weekend as lead caller and she LOVED it! Now she wants to do lots more weekends!
Her strong teaching and musical skills, combined with her musical and rhythmic vocal quality, help her deliver dances that are flowing, challenging, and fun! She has a particular knack for collecting dances with exceptional choreography designed to enhance the connectedness between us all. In her mind, that feeling of connection is what it is all about!
