College of the Atlantic hosts the Big Moose Contra Band with caller Chrissy Fowler on Saturday, March 2. The dance, held in Gates Community Center, begins 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 or 288-5620.
