Dancing in a circle is an ancient tradition common to many cultures for marking special occasions, the seasons, strengthening community and encouraging harmony and peace.
Circle dance draws on the rich and diverse traditional dances of countries from all around the world, with many dances from the Balkans, Greece, Russia, the Ukraine, and Israel. There is also a growing repertoire of new dances to classical music, contemporary songs and music composed for Circle Dance.
Circle dances can be energetic and lively or gentle and reflective. The style and mood reflects the group and the interests of the teacher. We aim always to experience the connection and joy of dancing with others, creating a sense of well-being and community.
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 groups meet regularly all over the United Kingdom and abroad, and hold special events, dance days, weekends and circle dance holidays.
