The last 22 years have been blessed with the Ralph Page Dance Legacy Weekend in Durham, N.H., an annual celebration of the New England traditions of contra and square dancing. These dance forms have been a part of life in the region for 200 years, and men like the late dance caller Ralph Page gave their time and energy to keep the traditions alive. The weekend of Jan. 15-17 is the 22nd Annual Ralph Page Dance Legacy Weekend, hosted in his honor. The celebration brings together top dance callers and musicians and offers visitors unique learning opportunities in dance. Cost is $80 for entire weekend for walk-ins, or $60 for pre-registration. Dancers can also pay per session or for the Grand Dance only. Youth dancers pay just half the adult rate. Call 603-659-5612 for information.
