Contra Dance – Friday, October 6 Come join us Friday, October 6 for a contra dance at our new location, 3906 Peachtree Drive (old location was 3910 Peachtree Drive). You can see the location on this map:

We’ll be dancing to the dynamic and energetic music of 32 Bartenders, With Tom Verdot on fiddle and banjo, Rebecca Logan on flute and penny whistle, Thom Howard on guitar and mandolin, and Marcie McGuire on piano. Caller Jim Thaxter will add excellent calling for the evening.
Dancing starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Ballroom Academy of Columbia, 3906 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 is necessary, as dancers switch partners for most dances. 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.)
As there is less seating than at the old location you may want to bring a folding chair. Be sure that it is one with legs that will not damage the dance floor.
