Contra Dance – Friday, April 17th

We have a very special treat for our MMTD dance this Friday, April 17th. Fine fiddler Fred Campeau will be coming all the way from Chicago to play for us! Fred is one of the Volo Bogtrotters and his band is called the Campeau Valley Boys. With Fred will be great St. Louis musicians Jim Nelson on guitar and Dedo Norris on bass.  And our own Jim Ruth will join them on banjo.

And if having such great energetic music isn’t enough, we also have a special caller: Lisa Harris from Lawrence KS, so we’re in for a double treat!

This will be a fun and lively dance! Hope to see you there!


The dance starts 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, and free for children 15 and under.  A beginner’s lesson starts at 7:00 p.m.

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