Join us on Saturday, May 8th for our Gala –
Celebrating One Year of Virtual Dancing!
Doors at 6:00PM, dance from 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM Central
Mid-Missouri Traditional Dancers is collaborating with communities across North America to produce a special Gala evening, celebrating one year of virtual dance.
Volunteers, bands, callers, sound techs, and organizers have all put in much effort over the past year to keep our communities connected, as we’ve found a way to dance in our homes. This special evening will honor those who have contributed to this creative effort.
We are thrilled to present twelve bands and eleven callers, as we pay tribute to the dance communities across North America:
- Cosmic Otters w/Katie Zukof (Bloomington)
- Box & String Trio w/Donna Hunt (Mt. Airy)
- Corwin & Grace w/Becky Liddle (Toronto)
- Maivish w/Louise Siddons (Scissortail/Oklahoma)
- Reelplay w/Cis Hinkle (Atlanta)
- Countercurrent w/Michael Karcher (Lake City/Seattle)
- Gròóvåtrøñ w/Janine Smith (Glen Echo/DC Area)
- Smith & Stam w/JoLaine Jones-Pokorney (Gainesville)
- Audrey & Max w/Claire Takemori (SF Bay Area)
- Bethany & Glen w/Sue Gola (Mt. Airy)
- Andrew & Noah VanNorstrand w/Drew Delaware (All Hands In Collective)
