Contra Dance — Friday, December 21, 2012

Our last regular MMTD dance of the year is coming up on this Friday, December 21st. We’ll dance to the driving music of River Ridge String Band (Cliff White on hammered dulcimer, Molly White on mandolin, Charlie Nelson on guitar and John Cunning on percussion), and for a very special treat, Wade Pearson from St. Louis will be calling.

What better way to observe the end of the Mayan Calendar than to dance the night away!

River Ridge String Band plays old-time, traditional, folk, celtic, bluegrass, and country music throughout the mid-Missouri area.

This week’s 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!
