Happy Hot Summer, All Dancers!

It’s time for our Watermelon Dance and Annual Meeting! Finally! This Friday, July 20th! Watermelon will be served at the break, seed spitting contests encouraged outside, and our Annual Meeting to elect officers and the board will take place right after the break.

To celebrate the middle of summer, 32 Bartenders brings a new mix to the MMTD contradance this Friday night: the dynamic double-shot of fiddler/banjoizer Tom Verdot and guitarist/mandolinoleumist Thom Howard (both recently of F-150) and stir in flutist/pennywhistlekicker Rebecca Logan.  32Bartenders will uncork a few house specials to serve alongside some fine vintage tunes.

Calling by the best: our master caller, Jim Thaxter. Be there and cast your vote for the very important folks who work so hard to bring us the dances and Spring Breakdown!

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!
