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).

Important Circle Dance News
I am delighted to announce that from September 2019 our classes are returning to their former frequency, i.e. twice per month, on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month.
Keith and I are taking a break over August so the first class of the new 'term' will be on Thursday September 5th.
The venue and time remain unchanged and new dancers are always welcome to come along and give Circle Dance a try. If I haven't chatted to you at Subs and Clubs, then just give me a call, we are a very friendly group and you will be made welcome!
Looking forward to sharing dances with you very soon.
