DURHAM — From hemlines to dance moves, the University of New Hampshire looked like a town dance from the old west Saturday—that is if they wore sneakers and watches or used a microphone to call out steps.
At the 25th annual Ralph Page Memorial Dance Legacy, sponsored by UNH and the Center for Humanities, those who participated in the three day weekend, which ran Friday to Sunday, not only celebrated the Granite State caller’s life, but also took part in a tradition he helped keep alive—contra and square dancing.
