Contra Dance — Friday, October 19, 2012

Jim Thaxter will be calling the contra dance on October 19.

Coming right up this Friday, October 19, is our next MMTD dance. We are very lucky to have the Mound City Slickers coming from St. Louis to play for us (Bill Stewart, David Crossley, Sean Belt-Ruprecht, Bob Clark, Rich Egan and Lindell Blackford), with Jim Thaxter calling.

Please bring clean shoes to dance in. Grit tracked in from outside is hard on the finish on the floor.

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