Contra Dance – Friday, May 16, 2014


We have a very special treat this week! The Campeau Creek Boys will be coming all the way from Chicago and St. Louis to play for us! Chicagoan Fred Campeau is a wonderful fiddler with a driving style and great tunes. Jim Nelson will play great backup guitar, Jeff Milller will play fine banjo with Dedo Norris on rock-solid bass. Calling will be by our own wonderful Paula McFarling. Not to be missed! It’ll be a fun and lively evening, so put on your dancin’ prancin’ shoes!

Who—Individuals, families, or couples; beginners or experienced dancers

When—Friday, May 16, at 7:30 p.m.

Where—at the Ballroom Academy of Columbia, 3910 Peachtree Drive.

How much—Admission to each dance is $8 for the public, $5 for students and ages 16-25, with free admittance for children 15 and under.

Why—Because people have been known to have fun dancing!

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.)
