Subject: [Callers] Ralph Page Dance Legacy Weekend
The *OTHER* NEFFA Festival is coming soon! The 23rd annual Ralph Page Dance
Legacy Weekend (which is sponsored by NEFFA) runs January 15-17 at
University of New Hampshire, Durham. Sarah Dawson and the RPLDW Committee
have put together a great weekend, with Lisa Greenleaf and Tony Parkes as
contra dance leaders, music by the Latter-Day Lizards and Old New England
(with White Cockade also playing on Fri. night), and a retrospective dance
session led by Marcie Van Cleave and Sylvia Miskoe to celebrate the
inspirational and varied life of Marianne Taylor.
The Sunday open mike session should be of particular interest to
beginning/intermediate callers. During the weekend, you can apply to be part
of the Open Mike session and call a dance you've prepared. You'll have great
musicians behind you on the stage, appreciative dancers in front of you on
the dance floor, and the opportunity to get feedback on your work from
experienced callers who have been doing this sort of thing for decades.
Consider calling a triple minor contra dance, if you don't often get the
opportunity to do so. The dancers know and love this formation, so you'll
get excellent experience in handling a contra in this traditional format.
You owe it to yourself. Go to the Ralph Page Dance Legacy Weekend and have
much more of a wonderful time two weekends from now than you could ever have
imagined. For more info go to:
Enjoy! ... Bob
