NEW YEAR’S EVE Dance:
New Years Eve is on a 5th Saturday, so we’ll be having a dance here in Bloomington at Harmony School. Darlene Underwood will call to music by Changeling from 8:00pm until after Midnight. Local dancers are encouraged to bring a snack to share at the break. We’ll have appropriate libations to toast the new year. Bring your adult beverages to the party after the dance at the home of Marie Deer, walking distance from Harmony School. Housing can be arranged for dancers from out of town: Contact Bill Baus 812-339-1210 or Baus1210(at)gmail.com .
The 39th Annual Sugar Hill will be on August 25-27, 2017. Save the date!
BOTMDG is dedicated to fostering the growth and development of Old Time musicians, callers, and dancers in a nurturing and friendly atmosphere. We are a non-profit organization based in Bloomington, Indiana, that is run entirely through the efforts of volunteers — your help is always needed and welcome!
We sponsor a contradance EVERY WEDNESDAY evening (no exceptions!) and several special dances throughout the year. All dances feature live music (Old Time, New England, and Irish dance tunes). Callers lead mostly contradances, with some squares, mixers, and other dances forms as well. This type of dance has a devout and enthusiastic following around the world. BOTMDG is one of the oldest groups of its kind in the country, and has danced every Wednesday since the group started in 1972.
