Even though we had a dance last week (the 5th Friday in April), we are very lucky to have another one this week on Friday, May 6 (the 1st Friday in May)! Fine music will be provided by The Scrap Hounds: great fiddling by Pete Howard from Fayetteville, Arkansas; rock steady backup guitar by Barbara Weathers from St. Louis; and great banjo playing by our own Jim Ruth. Paula McFarling will be our caller for the evening.
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 10th 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); ages16-25 or with student ID: $4; 26 and older: $7, a bargain!
