Mary's Dance Résumé

Mary Devlin leads contras, English Country dance, triplets, and squares. She's known for calling dances that emphasize great connections with partners, neighbors, and the music.

She teaches workshops in dance calling, neurolinguistic programming (NLP) insights applied to dance leadership, contra, English Country dance, and couple dancing.

Besides calling and dancing, Mary was President of the Country Dance and Song Society from 2003 to 2006. She also served on the CDSS Board of Directors and the Executive Board from 1996 to 2001. Mary has been program director for two CDSS English-American Weeks at Pinewoods and was program director for two BACDS English Dance & Music Weeks at Mendocino. She is the 2011 and 2012 program director for the BACDS English Dance & Music Weeks at Bishop's Ranch, a new venue for the event. Mary is again on the Portland Country Dance Community Board. She currently is the Secretary and also the English country dance representative.

In the past, touring has taken Mary to the mid-Atlantic states and the Southeast (with Rex Blazer and Anita Anderson), to several East Coast states (with Footloose), and to the Bay area in California (with John Hymas and Paul Hutchinson).
