Contra dance — Friday, July 15, 2011

One of MMTD's traditions is to cool off with some watermelon at the break during the July dance.

Don’t miss the last MMTD contra dance of summer (sometimes known as the “watermelon dance”)! River Ridge Stringband will provide the music (Cliff White on hammered dulcimer, Molly White on mandolin, Charlie Nelson on guitar, and John Cunning on banjo and percussion), with calling by Jim Thaxter.

During the break, we will hold our brief annual meeting, where we will elect new board members. If you or someone you know would like to serve on the board, contact Cherri.

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!
