Come join us for our first contra dance of 2012 on Friday, January 6, with music by Nine Mile Band — John White on fiddle, Dave Cavins on guitar, Amber Gaddy on piano and accordian, and Jim Ruth on banjo. Calling will be by our own great Paula McFarling. This will be a lot of fun and a great way to start the new year!
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 Tenth 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!
