Harry Preston Award

Kevin Lovell 2015

Simon Fielding described this Caller as the person who had made the most progress in his new skills since he had started a little over a year ago. He has shown great determination and enthusiasm in acquiring his new skills despite, and probably because of, a visual impairment.

Considering he had only started dancing a mere five years ago, he is already dancing at A2 and now going on to the Challenge programme.He has regularly attended the Caller Practice groups with both Trudy and Simon and Susie and Simon, he attended the 2014 GSI school and he has joined the calling team at NewCity Squares where he is wowing the dancers with his energetic style of calling. He has also called successfully in Europe and the USA.  

As well as making a big impression as a caller, he also volunteered to become the new Treasurer of Callers Club. The presentation was made on May 10th to Kevin who with his lovely wife Annika, is giving much pleasure to us all as we watch him progress in his new career.
