Wayne Baldwin began calling in 1967 with his first clubs in Kermit, Texas and Jal, New Mexico.  Soon he was calling Square Dances all over the Southwest.  During these past 42 years Wayne, with his wife Jodie, had the pleasure of traveling within Alberta and British Columbia Provinces in Canada, Alaska, Saudi Arabia, Holland, and most of the United States west of the Mississippi and in all of  ‘The Deep South’where he was the featured festival caller. Wayne always felt that the greatest contribution he could make for square dancing was to bring new people into the activity and teach new dancers.

Some of the greatest memories were during the 31 years Wayne was on the staff at Fun Valley, Colorado and five years on staff at The Banff Institute with the many friends made there.  He has recorded on Blue Star, Bogan, Roadrunner, Circle “D and Global records. Currently Wayne calls and teaches for the Swinging Stars of Plano, Steeple Steppers and Model A’s in Dallas and Heritage Ranch Hands in Fairview.  He has been the club caller for Swinging Stars and Model A's for 34 years.  He is a long time member of Callerlab, Texas State Callers Association and North Texas Callers Association.  Wayne and Jodie live in Fairview, Texas.
