Contra Dance – Friday, June 16

Join us for the last contra dance in Columbia until July 21! On Friday June 16 the music of our very own 32 Bartenders and calling by Claire Baffaut will combine to make for a fun dance to great music. 32 Bartenders is composed of Tom Verdot on fiddle, Marcie McGuire on keyboards, Rebecca Logan on flute, and Thom Howard on guitar and mandolin.

(Also mark your calendars for the dances at Cooper’s Landing on the third Tuesdays for the rest of the summer: June 20, July 18 and August 15. Details coming soon!)

The dancing 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.

No dance experience is needed and folks of all ages are welcome! 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.)

Questions? We love introducing beginners to contra dancing and welcome all your questions!  Contact us at or call (573) 825-4698.
