It is with great sadness that we report that one of the legends of contra-dance music – Bob McQuillen – died on Tuesday, after suffering a stroke at age 90. We were fortunate to have him come to Missouri for Spring Breakdown 2010, where he played his legendary boom-chuck piano and entertained us with stories.
We dance most first, third, and fifth Fridays (see schedule for details).
We always dance to live music. All ages and experience levels welcome. No partner needed.
