BAR HARBOR—College of the Atlantic hosts its Saturday contra dance with the Big Moose Contra Band and caller Chrissy Fowler on Saturday, April 6. The dance is the first contra dance of spring at COA. It will be held in Gates Community Center, beginning with a family dance at 6:30 p.m. At 8 p.m. the dances become more complicated for a more traditional experience.

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

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.
