We’re lucky to have five Fridays in November, which means we get an extra evening of contra dancing this month. Bring a friend or two (or three) and come dance with us this Friday night.
The New Two Cents band will be playing for us with Pippa Letsky on fiddle, Jim Thaxter on banjo, Cliff White on guitar, and Marcie McGuire on piano. Great calling will be by Paula McFarling. (Word has it that Krishna Fogle will be leading the beginners walk-through and calling a few dances.) This promises to be a fun dance!
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!
