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

MMTD’s dances are fun, community-oriented events that do not require prior dance experience. Individuals of all ages are welcome, as well as couples and groups. Every dance is taught and called throughout the evening to live music. Beginners are encouraged to come to an introductory lesson at 7:00 p.m. Dancers should wear lightweight, comfortable clothing and soft-soled or leather-soled shoes to preserve the floor—no spike heels or cowboy boots. (Please carry-in appropriate dance shoes as needed.)

MMTD sponsors regular contra and English Country dances throughout the year. Why? Because people have been known to have fun moving to music!
