​​ABOUT US
The son of long-time square dancers, Bronc joined his first square dance class in 1975. 16 weeks later, he called his first tip. Since that time, Bronc has become one of Square Dance Calling's true globetrotters. He has been featured at dances, festivals, workshops, resorts and caller schools all over the world. 

Many dancers feel that Bronc's smooth flowing hash calls are like "floating on air". They might also warn you to watch out for a twinkle in those big, brown eyes, as Bronc is a fine hash-calling technician known for inventive and challenging maneuvers. Most dancers feel Bronc is one of the activity's finest teachers. His presentation and "real world" approach to teaching is truly unique.

An accomplished guitarist, mandolin and bass player, Bronc has played on many square dance releases as well as radio and TV spots. His first "on stage" experience came at the age of 12 when he started playing in a rock band. Calling eventually took him away from band gigs. Not wanting to leave music completely, Bronc apprenticed at several recording studios learning the ins and outs of recording. Eventually, he was certified as a recording engineer. He now runs Amigo Studios here in Mission, TX.

Bronc has recorded vocals and/or music for several different square dance labels over the years. Currently Bronc is working on projects for our own Amigo Records, Sting Productions of London, England and ESP productions of Florida. 

Bronc and Fia live in Mission, TX where Bronc is resident caller at El Valle Del Sol RV park.
Born and raised in Sweden, Fia comes from a dancing family. Her Mother and Father were long time Swedish folk dancers. They started her in their folk dance club, Grillby Folkdansgille, when she was 7 years old. Not only were they dancing, but Fia's brother played accordian in the loacal folk dance band. In 1988, Fia's entire family joined a square dance class. Which was the first square dance class in their home town.

For what it's worth: Fia's birth name is Ritva Appelö. She has gone by the nickname Fia since she was a child.

Fia attended restaurant school in Uppsala, Sweden. She graduated as a Chef. After working in the restaurant business for a number of years, she decided to change careers and work in an antique store. It was here she found her true niche: refinishing antique furniture. Fia worked on some very old pieces. She recalls her oldest pieces were "church chairs" that were built around 1600. Her work with faux marble and wood is something to behold.

Today, Fia keeps her "artsy side" busy doing bead work. Many dancers around the world wear necklaces, bracelets and rings that she has designed. You can find pictures of her work elsewhere on this website.

Fia loves square dancing and square dancers. Her friendly nature and enthusiasm for square dancing is contagious.
