Information: Roy Hilburn, teacher of square, Cajun, and contra dance.

Roy, who taught contra dances and square dances, introduced folk dancers to Cajun dances. In the late 1980s, he also introduced Louisiana Cajun dancers to an Austrian folk dance called Zillertaller Ländler, whose motifs inspired an entire dance movement.

In addition to all of his dance teaching activities, he was once a long haul truck driver, and he also operated a sailing school in Florida!

Roy taught at the Stockton Folk Dance Camp and also the Mainewoods Folk Dance Camp for many years.
