Why Circle Dance?
Dancing in a circle is an ancient tradition common to many cultures for marking special occasions, strengthening community and encouraging togetherness. Modern Circle Dance draws on the rich and diverse traditional dances of many countries, including the Balkans, Greece, Israel and Russia. 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, with the style and mood reflecting the both the group and the interests of the teacher. Anyone of any age can circle dance. Each dance is taught, there is no audience and everyone is welcome. So why not come on your own, or with a friend (you do not need a partner) and join us on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month in the Community Centre at 2.30 till 4pm?
