 1. Spring Breakdown 2015 (video)

MMTD’s own 2015 Spring Breakdown in Kimball Ballroom with band “The Syncopaths” and special guest fiddler (and MU student) Roger Netherton.  Lisa Greenleaf  from Boston is calling.  This video demonstrates the interplay between musicians, caller, dancers and even the dance hall itself.


2. Musician’s Workshop (video)

The Spring Breakdown weekend features workshops for dancers, callers, and musicians to help grow and develop participants in the dance community.  On Saturday March 14th the Syncopaths held a musician’s workshop at DogMaster Distillery.  In this video the band leads a jam session in which participants each get an opportunity play a solo.  The spirit of fun and collaboration is evident.
