Meet Me in St Louis 2023 is coming together.

Music by:

MMiSL 2023 Band Toss the Possum Toss the Possum (Laura & Rob Zisette)
A family dance band since 2004. They play with high energy and a big sound, but also create lyrical magic on smooth sets. You might hear some fun rock-n-roll inserts as well as a number of original waltzes. You will enjoy a lot of creativity, some humor, and great passion with this band.

Calling by:

Location


The park behind the Kirkwood Community Center

We danced, before the pandemic, in the beautiful St. Louis suburb of Kirkwood,  at the Kirkwood Community Center at 111 South Geyer Road, Kirkwood, MO 63122.  The center has a great wood floor and is fully air conditioned.

When not dancing, we would step outside and enjoy the adjacent park, or a stroll around the pond.
