Meet Me in St Louis 2023 is coming up.
Memorial Day Weekend, May 26-28, 2023
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. You will enjoy a lot of creativity, some humor, and great passion with this band.
From St Louis and full! of surprises. Roger and Bill played at earlier MMISL weekends and we received lots of requests to bring them back.
Terry is an accomplished caller who comes to us from N Carolina. Her high energy calling style includes flat foot dancing on stage adding percussive rhythm sounds that accompany the music.
This is an experiment. We have had such great calling from the top national callers we have used in the past - but we also have a lot of great callers who attend the weekend to dance who have expressed and interest in calling - so why not have both?
The park behind the Kirkwood Community Center
MMiSL is held 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.
