For a fun evening of music and dancing, please join us for the first English Country Dance of the season, this Friday, October 14. Dance to the lively music of the 32 Bartenders, with Tom Verdot on fiddle, Thom Howard on guitar and mandolin, Rebecca Logan on flute and Marcie McGuire on keyboards. Elizabeth Couture will be calling to guide you through each dance.
Please note that the English Dances are at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 1600 Rollins Road, not at the Ballroom Academy of Columbia where the contra dances are held. Click here for a map.
The dance starts at 7:30 p.m. and there will be an introductory lesson at 7:00. Admission is $8 for the public, $5 for students and ages 16-25, with free admittance for children 15 and under.
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. No partner needed. Every dance is taught and called throughout the evening to live music. 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.)
Many thanks to the City of Columbia Office of Cultural Affairs for their support of our English Country Dance series.
