In this three-part series, Poorva and Mazie do a deep dive into the 127-year-old Way Bak Ball of Bar Harbor, also known as the Hayseed Ball. The first episode is a walkthrough of the wacky traditions which make this dance so unique. They speak to those closely acquainted with it and those who are only peripherally involved to get a better understanding of the dance.
