Doug & Don Sprosty
Extraordinary Square Dance Callers!
Twin brothers, Doug & Don Sprosty began calling in 1972 at age 12. You could say they have square danced their entire lives as their parents, Leonard & Mae (both deceased) began modern western style square dancing in 1958, the year before Doug & Don were born.
Doug & Don call an average of 3-5 nights per week up through the Advanced program. They are the club callers and instructors for the Solo Steppers in their home area of Davenport and Bettendorf, IA. Don is also the club instructor for the Grand Squares of Morrison, IL and the Maple Leaf Squares of Geneseo, IL.
The twins travel throughout the Midwest calling mostly in Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin as well as many of the surrounding states. Doug also cues the rounds at many of their dances.
Doug & Don have called at every National Convention since 1973. The same is true for the Iowa State Convention. They have called at all but two Wisconsin State Conventions since 1976 in addition to calling at many Illinois State Conventions and other state conventions as well. Doug & Don also have been on the program at two Canadian National Square Dance Conventions. The twins have been members of CALLERLAB since 1981.
Over the years, Doug & Don have been the featured callers and/or staff callers for weekends and festivals in Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Arkansas, California, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Pennsylvania and Wyoming. For many years they were active in the square dance camping organizations calling at countless National and State Camporees all over the U.S. and Canada.
In 2001, Doug & Don were inducted into the Iowa State Callers & Cuers Hall of Fame. The twins record on Solid Gold Records of Burlington, IA. Their latest releases are titled “Did She Mention My Name” and “Heartaches By The Number”.
Doug is employed as the Administrative Assistant at their parish, Holy Family Catholic Church in Davenport and lives in Davenport as well. Don & his wife, Natalie, live in Bettendorf. Don works part-time as the bookkeeper at St. John’s United Methodist Church in Davenport which allows him to continue to be “Mr. Mom” before and after school for their two sons, Roman (age 15 – 9th grade) & Andrey (age 14 – 8th grade). Roman & Andrey were adopted by Don & Natalie in 2006 from an orphanage in Siberia.
Known for their smooth interesting danceable choreography, as well as their melodic harmonies, Doug & Don look forward to seeing you on the dance floor.
