Contra Dance — Friday, October 5, 2012

Coming right up this Friday, October 5, is our next MMTD dance. We are very lucky to have the fine River Ridge String Band playing for us and veteran Paula McFarling calling for us. River Ridge has a great driving sound and is made up of Cliff White on hammered dulcimer, Molly White on mandolin, Charlie Nelson on guitar and John Cummings on percussion and banjo.

River Ridge String Band plays old-time, traditional, folk, celtic, bluegrass, and country music throughout the mid-Missouri area.

The dance this week 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 and students of any age with ID: $4; 26 and older: $7, a bargain!
