Contra Dance – Friday, January 19th. Come join us Friday, January 19th for a contra dance at 3906 Peachtree Drive. Our lively music will be provided by Missouri Possum Tamers, with Dedo Norris (fiddle), Jeremiah Evans (banjo), Andy Gribble (guitar), and Jim Nelson (guitar). Missouri Possum Tamers plays Appalachian old-time music. Our caller will be Paula McFarling.
Beginners are encouraged to come to an introductory lesson at 7:00 p.m. Everything is explained. You do NOT need to know how to dance before you come. You also do NOT have to bring a partner.
Dancing starts at 7:30 p.m. at the Ballroom Academy of Columbia, 3906 Peachtree Drive. 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.)
