Many new dancers often hear experienced dancers refer to The Square Dance Guru in conversation, especially when it involves an argument over how a call should be danced or called.

The Square Dance Guru is the advice-columnist persona of Stewart Kramer, who was originally published in the newsletter of PACE Nor-Cal, with occasional appearances later on internet mailing lists. Unsure? Confused? Squarebroken? Ask the Square Dance Guru!

Stewart has been square dancing since 1983. In the 1990's, he wrote a column called "My Turn Now", which was published in The Prompter, a local square dance magazine based in San Jose, CA.

Currently, the Guru mostly chimes in on the challenge-sd mailing list, with occasional contributions to the sd-callers list.

Both of these mailing lists are maintained by Rich Reel. Subscribe by contacting Rich.

When contacted regarding the contents of this chapter, Stewart said: Remember, it's good luck to have the Square Dance Guru rub your tummy. ("If it brings you good luck, or if you get lucky, tell all your friends, especially if they're cute.")
