Sanella Stories

Ted Sannella (1928–1995) was a well-known leader of American square and contra dance. He started calling in 1946 while in college and continued throughout his life.


On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of his death (November 18, 2020), we solicited these reminiscences from dancers, musicians, and callers. We also include here links to other Sannella-related material that may be of interest.
