33rd Annual Ralph Page Dance Weekend

The assumption is that we will have the weekend. Staff, program and communications will be developed with the expectation that the current environment will change. Final decision will be made closer to the weekend.

“The Essence of the Past Driving the Spirit of the Future”

The Ralph Page Dance Weekend is a blast!

The Ralph Page Dance Weekend combines the best of traditional and contemporary New England contra dance and music with some of the best musicians and dance callers around. There are two exciting evenings of grand dancing, with enriching opportunities during the Saturday and Sunday workshops.

The 2021 weekend continues the showcasing of callers, musicians and dancers who present the history, skills and art of New England contra dance.

David Millstone and Gaye Fifer have both agreed to be weekend callers. Janet Yeracaris will lead a session on folk dancing.
Liz & Dan Faiella and David Surette have agreed to be one band. Amy Larkin and Benjamin Foss will anchor the other band. We are pursuing leads on another musician or two. More info on these performers coming.

Valuable feedback received from the 2020 scholarship recipients has helped reshape portions of the weekend, especially the last session.  Keeping the weekend unique is important. Increasing opportunities for scholarship recipients to learn more about the musical stylings and teaching techniques will be offered. 
 
We hope you will join us in January for a fabulous, fun, friendly weekend.
