Fifth Friday Contra Dance – March 31



March has five Fridays, which means a bonus contra dance! This Friday, March 31, we’ll enjoy dancing to music by Three around Three, featuring Pippa Letsky on fiddle, Cliff White on guitar, and Bill Foley on banjo. Excellent calling will be provided by Paula McFarling. Break out your dancin’ shoes and plan to join us for what’s sure to be a fun dance.

You won’t want to miss this dance because there will be no contra dance the next Friday, April 7, due to the Big Muddy Folk Festival in Booneville. 

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.)
