Columbia Contra Dances

Ballroom Academy of Columbia (3910 Peachtree Drive)

So they’re not exactly traditional square dances, but if you enjoy dancing, you might give the Mid-Missouri Traditional Dancers’ contra dances a shot. Dances are held starting at 7 p.m. on the first, third and fifth Fridays of the month, September through June at the Ballroom Academy of Columbia (3910 Peachtree Drive). They always dance to live music, such as John White and his Nine Mile Band. Admission is $6.
