The Mid-Missouri Traditional Dancers (MMTD) will sponsor an English Country Dance on Friday, November 22 at 7:30 p.m. at the Ballroom Academy of Columbia, 3910 Peachtree Drive. Music by Rebecca Logan on flute, Thom Howard on guitar, Roger Netherton on fiddle, and Marcie McGuire on keyboard, with Jim Thaxter calling the dances. 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. Why? Because people have been known to have fun moving to music.
