Listen to sample tracks  at The Bellow and the Bow and get ready to dance!  The dances for the evening will be called by Paula McFarling. Admission for the public is $8; students and ages 16-25, $5; with free admittance for children 15 and under.

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. For more information,  call 573-874-6814.
