When Michael Kellogg saw Square Dancing for the first time in 1983 at the age of 21, he joined a beginner class almost immediately, and started calling very soon after.
During the late 80s and 90s he called square dance full-time for a living, traveling for extended periods throughout the U.S., Europe, and Japan. During the early 2000s he reduced his Square Dance traveling schedule and began working full-time during the day as a software engineer. For the last 17 years he has worked to support DVD, Blu-Ray, and Ultra High Definition Optical Disc manufacturing for Technicolor Home Entertainment Services in Camarillo California (a Pacific coastal community between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara California).
While maintaining a full-time job during the day, Michael still keeps a busy Square Dance schedule. He teaches beginner thru C3B classes on a weekly basis, and calls for special events on many weekends. His travel is restricted mostly to weekends now, as touring for extended periods is difficult alongside a daytime job. He averages two out of town weekend events each month, and regularly does local dances in the greater Los Angeles area as well.
Michael's home is in Northridge California, a Los Angeles suburb in the north part of the county.
