NOTICE: Due to expected bad weather tonight’s dance is cancelled. Join us next Friday, January 20 for our next contra dance!
Join us for our first English Country Dance of the new year, this Friday, January 13. We’ll be dancing to the lively tunes 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 our caller for the evening, guiding us through the dances.
English Country Dances are held at Trinity Presbyterian Church, 1600 Rollins Road. 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 is 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.)
We would like thank the City of Columbia Office of Cultural Affairs for their support of our English Country Dance series.
