The Venue

All of the dancing and workshops take place in the Memorial Union Building (MUB) on the UNH campus. This spacious facility offers all the amenities, including a beautiful wood dance floor.

The Grand Dance

The Grand Dance on Saturday evening is an event not to be missed - festive attire suggested! Don’t miss the Grand March at the very beginning; it’s a highlight of the Weekend!

The Retrospective

Each year, the work of a prominent caller, musician or dance style is highlighted. The 2009 Dance Legacy Weekend will look at the many French Canadian Influences on our New England Music & Dance Traditions.

The Workshops

On Saturday and Sunday there are workshops for dancers, musicians and callers. These offer beginners and experienced folks alike an opportunity to polish their skills with guidance from our talented performance staff.

Work Exchange

If you volunteer for several hours of work you can attend the Weekend for only $25 (meals not included). The number of volunteers is limited. Apply early!

An excellent reference resource, describing the dances done, will be made available for a nominal fee. We generally have some syllabi from previous Weekends for sale as well.
