Bernie Culkin

Bernie is a dance teacher and caller based in Cheshire in the UK, who particularly loves the dances of Playford as well as modern choreographies in the Playford style. She is known for her clear calling style and has called at Whitby Folk Festival, Lichfield Folk Dance Festival, Casterton, Southam, Holland, and Eastbourne Folk Festival in addition to evening dances and weekends across the UK. As a dance teacher, she wants all dancers to dance to the best of their ability by encouraging good technique, timing and teamwork.

During the pandemic, Bernie was quick to move her calling onto Zoom and hosted regular virtual ECD dance sessions for her own and local clubs, attracting dancers from across the UK and US.
