Serving up some fine 32-bar contra dance tunes!

Serving up some fine 32-bar contra dance tunes!

We are very lucky to have the fine band 32 BARTENDERS (Tom Verdot on fiddle, Thom Howard on guitar and mandolin, Rebecca Logan on flute and Marcie McGuire on piano) playing for us on Friday night and great calling by our own master caller, Jim Thaxter. This will be a lively, driving combination not to be missed! Details below.

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!
