Contra Dance — Friday, November 16, 2012

Our next MMTD dance is this Friday, November 16. We are very lucky to have the wonderful James River Scraphounds playing for us and our master caller Jim Thaxter calling for us! Pete Howard is coming up from Fayetteville, Arkansas, to fiddle for us, Barbara Weathers is coming in from St. Louis to play guitar, and our own Jim Ruth will be on the banjo. They play great driving music, and it’s a special treat to get to have them here! Don’t miss it!

Master caller Jim Thaxter enjoys calling contra dances, squares, English country dances, and family dances.

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!
