Put on your dancing shoes and drop by the Jesup Memorial Library on Saturday, June 22 at 6:30 p.m. for a contra dance with the Big Moose Band. Caller Chrissy Fowler will teach you the steps and have you dancing along in no time.
From 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., there is a free dance where you can drop by and learn more about contra dancing. This hour is a great time for people who have never contra danced to stop by and learn basic steps and if you have contra danced before it is a perfect time to brush up on your knowledge. From 7:30 p.m. on there is an $8 per person requested donation to help pay the caller or $25 per family. Children ages 12 and younger and College of the Atlantic students can dance all night for free.
That night the Big Moose Band will provided the amazing music that will have you wanting to dance. Big Moose features some of the area’s finest musicians including Ruth Grierson, Keith Davis, Jim Vekasi, Charlie Richardson, Fred Benson, Ed Damm and Anne Damm, among others.
