Note: There *will* be a dance tonight, so come warm up with the Mid-Missouri Traditional Dancers.

Our next MMTD dance is this Friday, January 21st, and the band is F-150, our favorite pickup truck, with great musicians Tom Verdot on fiddle, Thom Howard and Pippa Letsky both on guitar and mandolin, and for a special treat, Matt Bossaller will join them on bass as Kathy Gordon has been out of commission. And, for another special treat, Wade Pearson from St. Louis will be calling for us. This dance will be a lot of fun!

The dance will be at the usual time and place: 7 pm lessons, dance 7:30 to 10:30 pm at the First Christian Church, corner of 10th and Walnut in downtown Columbia, north entrance under the driveway canopy.

The dances start easy and become somewhat more difficult (but not impossible) as the evening progresses, so if you’re a beginner, come early. All dances are taught and no partner is necessary. Please wear clean soft-soled shoes to protect our gorgeous wooden floor. And most importantly, have fun! Children 15 and under: free (as always); ages16-24 or with student ID: $4; 25 and older: $7—a bargain!
