It’s with great sadness that ECTA has to announce that John Kaltenthaler at the age of 86 passed away on May 9, 2016.
During his time in Europe John served as ECTA Training Director and ECTA President for two terms. He established the first college of Square Dance and Round Dance in Europe.
Above this he was engaged in club calling in northern Germany and later on in the Heidelberg area.
As one of the highest honors, he received the Callerlab Milestone Award in 1998. He had an experience of more than 50 years of Square Dance Caling to share.
Our thoughts and prayers go to his family and relatives.
The ECTA Board
