This is a week full of contra dance opportunities! Besides the dance at Cooper’s Landing on Tuesday, and the dance at the Ballroom Academy of Columbia on Friday, add one more to your calendar. On Saturday, July 16, Cliff White and Charlie Nelson (part of River Ridge String Band) will be playing music for a dance at the Jefferson City Mormon Church. Jim Thaxter will be leading the dancing for church members and anyone else who would like to join them. Ice cream will be available. Dancing will be from 6:00-7:30 pm at the church, which is located at 4618 Henwick, west of Capitol Mall off Highway 50.
We dance most first, third, and fifth Fridays (see schedule for details).
We always dance to live music. All ages and experience levels welcome. No partner needed.
