Contra Dance – Friday, April 19th

Join the Mid-Missouri Traditional Dancers this Friday, April 19th, for an evening filled with great music and wonderful dancing!  The Campeau Creek Boys will provide the tunes. Fred Campeau, who plays with the Volo Bogtrotters in Chicago, will be on fiddle.  From St. Louis we’ll have Jim Nelson (Ill-Mo Boys) on guitar and Dedo Norris on bass. And our own Jim Ruth will be on banjo.  Great calling will be provided by Paula McFarling.

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!
