Celebrate the New Year this Friday with the first contra dance of 2017! Music will be provided by the 32 Bartenders, featuring Tom Verdot on fiddle, Thom Howard on guitar and mandolin, Rebecca Logan on flute and Marcie McGuire on keyboards. Claire Baffaut will be our caller for the evening, guiding us through the dances.
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.)
