The man behind the microphone...Cecil Burton. In all the years that Cecil has been calling for the Swinging Rebels, his squares have never broken-down and somehow he always manages to get you back home with the right person. (???!!!) Seriously, he is a fantastic caller, an excellent teacher and a wonderful person to know.

Cecil Burton and his wife Barbara - Caller for the Swinging Rebels in Oklahoma City
Mr. Cecil Burton started Club Calling in 1989, began Club Calling in 1990, began full-time calling in 1997. He is a member of CALLERLAB, Okla. State Callers & Teachers Association, & Central District Callers Association. He is currently the caller for three square dance clubs: Swinging Rebels (OKC, OK), Bartlesville Bootscooters (Bartlesville, OK)& Belles & Beaus(Tulsa, OK). Cecil and his wife Barbara, have called at the last twelve National Conventions. They have called for clubs in Minnesota, South Dakota, Texas, Kansas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. As Cecil says,

"We feel very honored to be asked to call for the clubs that we call for and also we are honored when we are asked to guest call. We feel square dancing truly is Fun & Fellowship Set To Music."
From Vic and Debbie's "Square Dance Resource Net"

the Bethany Tribune Square Dance article. The Tribune, Bethany's local newspaper (i.e. THE TRIBUNE, WEEKENDER, NOVEMBER 30-DECEMBER 2, 2012 | 5A), published an article about the Swinging Rebels detailing the club's 50+ year history and what the club is doing nowdays. It's difficult to believe the club has been dancing for over 50 years!
That has to be some kind of record - congratulations!
