I will third (or fourth?) the Ralph Page Dance Legacy Weekend endorsement.
As a former committee member, I know the work and thoughtfulness that goes
into producing this weekend. I've heard top class performers say that it's
the only dance weekend that they would actually pay to attend even if they
weren't performing (and I guess the percentage of callers and musicians
among the regular attendees speaks to that.)
If you are the sort of dancer (or caller) who doesn't particularly enjoy
participating in well-connected dancing, visiting with community spirited
attendees, basking in the style and grace of lifelong dancers, laughing as
Bob McQuillen shamelessly interrupts a walkthrough to shout out some
humorous yet relevant anecdote, and celebrating the roots and branches of
our collective dance family tree, well... it may not be for you. But, wow,
if any of those things seem appealing, it's really really really fun.
And, about lunch. NOTE: You don't have to be on the meal plan to join the
lunch gatherings. (The Saturday banquet is a different matter, as it's in a
different dining hall) But I never buy the meal plan (too choosy about what
good foods I eat!), and happily enjoy bringing my feast to the table of
Will look forward to seeing many of you there!
