Biography
  • George was born in London, UK. He met his wife Pam at a square dance club in 1952 when they were both asked to be part of a demonstration team for a folk-dance festival at the Royal Albert Hall in London (representing America). They married in 1956 and subsequently had 5 children so square dancing wasn't on the agenda for some years. In 1974 they emigrated to Australia with their five children and settled in Melton, 40k west of Melbourne. They took up square dancing again around 1977 dancing firstly with Ian Mitchem in Melton Vic. and then Frank Kennedy in Altona, Vic. remaining with Frank for 11 years. George was Frank's trainee in later years. When they moved to Merimbula NSW in 1989 to manage holiday flats there wasn't a square dance club in the town. They could not imagine life without it, so they started one up, which reaches its 20th year in 2010.
