2 Dance Weekend – December 19th and 20th

Another 2 dance weekend!   A contra dance on Friday and English Country dance on Saturday!  We hope you can join us!

The Friday contra dance features River Ridge String Band – with fine musicians Cliff White on hammer dulcimer, Molly White on mandolin, Charlie Nelson on guitar and John Cunning on percussion.  There will be several callers from the calling community to lead us, and this promises to be a fun and lively dance!

The English Country dance on Saturday features the 32 BarTenders (Tom Verdot on fiddle, Thom Howard on guitar, Rebecca Logan on flute and pennywhistle, and Marcie McGuire on keyboard.)  Calling will be by our wonderful and well appreciated master caller, Jim Thaxter.

This dance is sponsored in part by the City of Columbia Office of Cultural Affairs (, and by the Country Dance and Song Society (cdss.org).

Both dances start at 7:30 p.m. at the Ballroom Academy of Columbia, 3910 Peachtree Drive. Admission is $8 for the public, $5 for students and ages 16-25, with free admittance for children 15 and under.  A beginner’s lesson starts at 7:00 p.m.
