Contra Dance – Friday, May 18, 2012

photo of members of the band Prairie AcreTime to get your dancing shoes out for another great evening of fun with Mid-Missouri Traditional Dancers. This Friday night we’ll be joined by The Prairie Acre with some lively tunes to get your feet moving. They have a new album, so you’ll want to check that out. They are Tricia Spencer on fiddle, Greg Yother on guitar, Virginia Musser on bass and Noah Musser on banjo, from Lawrence, KS.

Prairie Acre will be joined by Columbia’s own Janine Gordon. She always has some interesting dances. They’ll be a great combination.

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); ages16-25 and students of any age with ID: $4; 26 and older: $7, a bargain!
