About the Author
Born in Chicago in 1960, Allan Hurst lives in Sunnyvale, California, dancing and calling all over the San Francisco Bay Area. He ostensibly dances C2, and calls Basic through C1. He is a member of both the GCA and CALLERLAB.
Allan is a member of Midnight Squares (of which is he one of the administrators), El Camino Reelers, Foggy City Dancers, Squares Across the Border, Chi-Town Squares, and Salt Lake City's Temple Squares. In his copious spare time, he edits a quarterly, entitled The Call Sheet: Professional Journal of the Gay Callers Association, and he updates The Guide to IAGSDC Convention each year.
His frequent regular attendance at multiple fly-ins have earned him the self-imposed title of "Diva Of The West Coast Fly-In Circuit [Which Has Been Arbitrarily Redefined to Include Chicago]."
Professionally, Allan is a partner in a technology services company located in Fremont, California, and runs a technical user group in Oakland, California. If the Silicon Valley location didn't tip you off ... he's a big old computer network geek.
In 2003, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Allan became legally married to Randy Hensley (also of the El Camino Reelers) at a weekend fly-in hosted by Squares Across The Border. The full story of their wedding (with pictures) can be found at his website. Their marriage is valid in Canada, Spain, England, and any IKEA.
Allan has written many square dance articles, which are available online & free of charge at his website.
