Dance Legacy Weekend

DURHAM - The 27th Annual Ralph Page Dance Legacy Weekend (RPDLW) is being held at the University of New Hampshire on January 17, 18 and 19. The annual three-day event features some of the finest callers and musicians from New England and across the country, and provides people of all ages and abilities the opportunity to dance and socialize in a warm and friendly setting.

The RPDLW runs from 7:30 p.m., on Friday evening until 4:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. Attendees can register for the entire weekend, or pick-and-choose the sessions of interest to them. Both pre- and on-site-registration is available. The RPDLW takes place at the Memorial Union Building on the campus of the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH. A complete schedule of events and registration information can be found at www.ralphpage.neffa.org.

Callers for the 2014 RPDLW are three well-known and accomplished professionals (and legends in their own time); Dudley Laufman, Susan Kevra and Lisa Sieverts. All three of these dance masters are known for their clear calling style and genuine connection with the dancers. Dudley, Susan and Lisa will be accompanied by three fabulous bands: Mavish (Adam Broome, Jaige Trudel and Matthew Olwell); Calliope (Amy Cann, Vince O’Donnell, Carol Compton, Ray Salvo and Bruce Randall); and a wonderful local combo, Trip to Nelson, for the Friday night dance.

A very special part of the Weekend each year is the Retrospective on Saturday that highlights a prominent caller, musician or dance style. The 2014 Retrospective will focus on: Mentors: Keeping the Traditions Alive. This special session will focus on dances and careers of many legendary Leaders of traditional dance.

In addition, there will be Workshops on calling, music and dance for those who wish to hone their craft or improve their skills in any of these areas. Workshops are lead by the talented callers and musicians on staff for this Weekend.

The full weekend adult fee is $80.00 (lodging and meals not included). Admission to individual sessions may be purchased a-la-carte:
