newman miriam

Miriam Crane Newman, currently based in Boston MA, started calling in 2006 at the Swarthmore College Folkdance Club, taught by Joanna Reiner; after college, she moved to New York City and participated in Country Dance*New York's ECD caller's apprenticeship program, from which she graduated in June 2011. Miriam has called for everything from a sixteen-person contra dance on a roof in Brooklyn to some of the most established dances in the US, and has enjoyed every one. Miriam made her first forays into choreography with a Swarthmore classmate in Thirtieth Street Station in Philadelphia while waiting for the train to an English dance. That dance, based on a dream, never quite came together, but others have followed, including with a dance that was in part choreographed on a subway platform in New York.
