Come join us for our first contra dance of 2011 – Friday, January 7, with music by with our wonderful musician friends from Jeff City, the River Ridge String Band: Cliff White on hammered dulcimer, Molly White on mandolin, Charlie Nelson on guitar and John Cunning on percussion. Calling will be by our own great Janine Gordon. This will be a lot of fun and a great way to start the new year!
The dance will be at the usual time and place: 7 pm lessons, dance 7:30 to 10:30 pm at the First Christian Church, corner of Tenth and Walnut in downtown Columbia, north entrance under the driveway canopy. The dances start easy and become somewhat more difficult (but not impossible) as the evening progresses, so if you’re a beginner, come early. All dances are taught and no partner is necessary. Please wear clean soft-soled shoes to protect our gorgeous wooden floor. And most importantly, have fun! Children 15 and under: free (as always); ages16-24 or with student ID: $4; 25 and older: $7, a bargain!
