Join the Big Moose Contra Band and caller Chrissy Fowler for what will be College of the Atlantic’s first contra dance of the new year. The dance begins with a family affair at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 2, followed by a more traditional dance at 8 p.m.

The family portion focuses on partner dances, so children can remain with their parents, siblings and known friends without too many partner changes. It also features simpler dances.

More complicated dances will begin as usual at 8 p.m. Fowler coaches each dance, so both beginners and veterans can participate. All are welcome and no partner is necessary.

The 6:30 family dance is $2 for adults; $1 for children. For the 8 p.m. dance, the cost is $6 for adults; children are free. For more information on College of the Atlantic’s contra dances in Gates Community Center, 105 Eden St., Bar Harbor, ME, contact Susan Pink at susan@susanpink.com or 288-5620.
