MMTD hosts an evening of elegant English Country Dancing this Saturday evening, October 26, at the Ballroom Academy of Columbia, 3910 Peachtree Drive, 7 to 10:30 pm. Jim Thaxter will call the dances for the evening, with music by 32 Bartenders (Tom Verdot on fiddle, Rebecca Logan on flute and whistle, Thom Howard on guitar, and Marcie McGuire on keyboard).
Admission for the public is $8; students and ages 16-25, $5; with free admittance for children 15 and under.
MMTD’s dances are fun, community-oriented events that do not require prior dance experience. Individuals of all ages are welcome, as well as couples and groups. Every dance is taught and called throughout the evening to live music. Beginners are encouraged to come to an introductory lesson at 7:00 p.m. Dancers should wear lightweight, comfortable clothing and soft-soled or leather-soled shoes to preserve the floor—no spike heels or cowboy boots. (Please carry in appropriate dance shoes as needed.)
MMTD sponsors regular contra and English Country dances throughout the year. Read more about English Country dancing here.
