Those who didn’t get enough dancing in over the holidays are invited to kick off the New Year at the Eclipse Event Center (the former Speakeasy) Friday night, Jan. 4.

DJ Dan Miller will spin all sorts of great dance music from swing to Latin to blues, and maybe even a waltz, from 8 to 11 p.m. at the downtown dance venue below the Trade Winds.

The Eclipse offers a cozy venue with a nice dance floor and the bar will be open. Weather should cooperate, so dancers are looking forward to a fun evening dancing with old and new friends — partner or no, everyone is welcome.

Admission is $5 with a membership (membership is $20 for the year); for non-members, it’s $10, $15 a couple. Local dance fans organized Midcoast Dance to create more partner dancing events in the Midcoast.
