Contra dance — Friday, March 18, 2011

Many many thanks for everyone who helped make Spring Breakdown a rousing success! Kudos to the board and committees for all their hard work and thank you, dear dancers, for coming out and supporting it. A good time was had by all!

More dancing is on the way: this Friday, March 18th, MMTD will have Old Reunion playing for us, with Paula McFarling calling some fine dances. Old Reunion features young fiddling whiz Richard Shewmaker accompanied by veteran musicians Jim Ruth on banjo, Heinrich Leonhard on guitar and Kathy Gordon on bass. This will be a fun time with lots of energetic dancing!

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); ages 16-25 or with student ID: $4; 26 and older: $7, a bargain!
