Dana Schirmer, Executive Director

 Dana manages the Home Office in Topeka, Kansas. One of his many duties is to plan and run the annual Convention. Dana has been the CALLERLAB Executive Director since June 2009. He started dancing in 1968 and began calling in 1978. He has served two terms on the Board of Governors and has served on staff at Kirkwood Lodge providing dance entertainment to non square dance families vacationing at the Lake of the Ozarks. Dana also conducts caller training sessions for newer callers and was the Business Chairman for the 57th National Square Dance Convention held in Wichita, Kansas in 2008.

Dana met his wife Donna through square dancing and they were married in 1994. Dana retired from the Santa Fe Railway in 1996 as Manager of Financial Reporting and Budgets. He then went to work for Heartland China, Inc. as Office Administrator and Controller. In 2000 he and Donna bought the company and operated it for four years. 



Royce Dent, Administrative Support - Coordinator

Royce was born in Topeka, KS and was raised in a small rural town nearby. She began square dancing over 30 years ago in her hometown and soon joined a Topeka club whose caller was CALLERLAB’s own Dana Schirmer.  Her love for square dancing has given her the opportunity to travel, meet many new friends, and now to support the CALLERLAB Home Office doing editing, convention planning, and other activities.  She also assisted Dana and Donna with the business portion of the 57th National Convention held in Wichita, KS until she moved to Papillion, NE where she now resides.

Royce sings with a well-known choral organization in Omaha, and is very active doing volunteer work in her church and community.  Her extensive nursing experience serves her well as the Credentialing Manager for a Topeka managed care health plan.  She is very proud of her two sons, Brian and Billy.
