32nd Annual Ralph Page Dance Weekend

A decision was made to *CANCEL* the Ralph Page Dance Weekend. The projected timing of the weather events causing difficulties with driving and the facility, made canceling the entire weekend as good a decision as possible. It's profoundly disappointing considering all the effort that went into this year's planning and the long history. Please spread the word.

What a fantastic line up: Our 2019 Staff exemplifies the tradition of excellence you have come to expect from this weekend. On Friday night, caller Bill Olson serves up the Maine course, with a good mix of old and new dances to delight your dancing feet. Weekend callers Will Mentor and Sue Rosen present a menu of contras, squares, and tried and true favorites. All of this to great New England style music as played by Donna Hébert, Gretchen Koehler, Max Cohen, Julie Metcalf, Mark Roberts and Bruce Rosen. We are excited about these players because they are also accomplished, accessible and dedicated teachers of the skill and art of contra dance music.

After dancing, playing and merry making, you will float home at the end of the weekend with a glow from a satisfying dance and community experience. Join us for a fabulous weekend!
