Nancy Mamlin has called square dances throughout the United States, including at dance camps and old-time music events such as Fiddlehead, Swannanoa, and Hoppin’ John, in North Carolina; the Coal Country Convention in Pennsylvania; the Augusta Heritage Center’s traditional arts weeks in West Virginia; and the Rockbridge Mountain Music and Dance Festival in Virginia. She is one of the founders of the Dare To Be Square dance and calling event, and served on the calling staff for Dare To Be Square – West and Dare To Be Square – Nashville. Mamlin’s square dance repertoire concentrates on dances of the Southeast, particularly the mountains of North Carolina, but also includes dances from western Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and the Western square traditions. She also plays guitar with her husband, fiddler Ron Cole, along with banjo player Terry Burtyk and cellist Kasy Poole Decosimo in the Bull City Quartette.
