Having been a dancer since he was four, Robert Moir was introduced to English Country Dance by his wife Hazel when they moved from London to Newcastle upon Tyne in 1972. In due course he was recruited to join the calling team, and eventually led two weekly classes as well as being involved in dance events in the North East, Yorkshire, the Lake District and North Wales. When they moved south to Gloucestershire, Robert soon became known to the dance community in the South West and then nationally in the UK. He has called in most parts of the UK, and is currently involved in a series of special Sunday afternoon events at Cecil Sharp House in London. Robert has been invited to participate on several occasions in events in the US and also in Belgium and the Netherlands. Because of his dancer-friendly teaching Robert is much in demand to pass on his own love of dance to others. Both Robert and Hazel are members of the Pat Shaw Liaison Group which was set up initially to organize and encourage others to join in the centenary celebrations of Pat Shaw’s birth.
