Modern circle dance draws on the rich and diverse traditional dances of many countries, including the Balkans, Greece, Israel, Russia, and France. There is also a growing repertoire of new dances to classical music and contemporary songs.
Circle dances can be energetic and lively or gentle and reflective. The aim always is to experience the joy of dancing with others.
Almost anyone of any age or ability can circle dance. Each dance is taught, there is no audience and everyone is welcome. So come on your own or with a friend (you do not need a partner) and join in. Circle dance is suitable for both men and women and new group members are welcome at any time.
We dance at St Peter's Social Club, Black Dog Way, London Road, GLOUCESTER GL1 3EX
(The entrance is the door facing London Road).

Our class schedule is somewhat irregular for the early part of 2020 as Keith and I are sharing dances with the Folk Dance and Song sub-group of the Camping and Caravan Club at the beginning of January and then we will be on holiday for the third Thursday of January.
We will be dancing on the following dates:-
January 16th; February 20th; March 5th; March 19th and April 2nd
We are always happy to welcome new dancers to the group. Our aim is to enjoy a wide variety of music and dances from around the world, exercise our bodies and our brains, but most importantly of all, to have fun.
Looking forward to sharing dances with you all again very soon.
