Contra Dance – Friday, December 30

Don’t miss the last contra dance of 2016 this Friday, December 30th! Plan now to join us and dance to the tunes of the River Ridge String Band, featuring Cliff White on hammered dulcimer, Molly White on banjo and mandolin, Ted Koenig on guitar, and John Cunning on banjo and rhythm instruments.  One of our regular guest callers, Valerie Young, will be returning to lead the dances for the evening.

The dance starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Ballroom Academy of Columbia, 3910 Peachtree Drive. Beginners are encouraged to come to an introductory lesson at 7:00 p.m.  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.)
