Our next MMTD dance is this Friday, November 1st, and we will have a chance to dance to some of our new callers! Great music will be provided by 32 Bartenders, with fine musicians Tom Verdot on fiddle, Thom Howard on guitar and mandolin, Rebecca Logan on flute and Marcie McGuire on keyboards. Calling will by led by our veteran master caller Jim Thaxter. Don’t miss this chance to welcome our new callers and do some lively dancing!

Don’t forget!  We have moved.  Dances are now held at The Ballroom Academy of Columbia (BAC).  This wonderful facility has a spacious, floating wood floor and comfortable seating.  The BAC is located at 3910 Peachtree Drive in the same plaza as the French Laundry (behind Arby’s) and faces Monterey Drive.

The dance is from 7:30–10:30 pm (beginners’ lesson at 7:00).   Admission $8.00 ($5.00 for ages 16–25 or with student ID; free for children 15 and under).  Season passes are available.

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.

Important Note – Please wear soft-soled or leather soled shoes to preserve the floor–no spike heels or cowboy boots. Please carry in appropriate dance shoes as needed.

The BAC has an endless water dispenser with paper cups, but we encourage you to bring a water bottle.

Carpooling: If you need a ride or are willing to drive to the Ballroom Academy from downtown, contact Rhett.
