Remembering Bob McQuillen

After two years of wonderful virtual programs, the RPDW committee is eager to return to an in-person event. 

However, the uncertainty of the in-person landscape next winter and increased costs at UNH prevent us from just going back to the way things were. 

Instead, as a transition, we are planning a one-day event at the beautiful, recently restored Whitcomb Hall in Swanzey, New Hampshire. Swanzey is just down the road from Keene, NH, Ralph’s longtime home town.  Whitcomb has a wonderful main dance hall, a space for workshops, and a gathering place for meals. 

Since 2023 is the year of Bob McQuillen’s 100th birthday, the program will focus on celebrating Mac and his contributions. We are also exploring a virtual element for those unable to attend in person, so that no one is left out of the celebration.

The last two years have hit the dance world hard. So we are looking forward to January as a way to safely gather together (at last) and build a sustainable path to keep the Ralph Page Spirit alive. 

Since we are still in the planning process, we welcome your thoughts and comments.
