It’s finally here! The first dances of the season. Luckily, the temperature is perfect in Mid-Missouri so, yee-haw! And, hey, by the way; there are two dances this weekend. A Contra Dance on Friday night and, an English Country Dance on Saturday night. Why not make it to both? Yeah, MMTD!
Tom Verdot on fiddle, Thom Howard on guitar, Rebecca Logan on flute and Marcie McGuire on keyboard.
They play a variety of tunes with lively arrangements and a great driving sound.
our own master caller/teacher, the one and only Jim Thaxter
And a big welcome to Claire Baffaut, who will be sharing the calling with Jim at the contra dance.
Both dances are from 7:30–10:30 pm (beginners’ lesson at 7:00). No partner is necessary! Most of us switch partners with every dance and experienced dancers are more than happy to dance with new-comers to help them get the hang of it.
Admission $8.00 ($5.00 for ages 16–25 or with student ID; free for children 15 and under).
