Contra Dance — Friday, March 1, 2013

Had enough snow already? Cabin fever getting the best of you? Join the Mid-Missouri Traditional Dancers this Friday for an evening filled with dance, music, and conviviality. River Ridge String Band will provide the tunes (Cliff White on hammered dulcimer, Molly White on mandolin, Charlie Nelson on guitar and John Cunning on percussion), and Paula McFarling will lead us through the dance.

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!
