Circle Dance – Learning the Basics July

Tue, Jul 3, 2018 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Main Hall

Are you new to sacred circle dance and would like a chance to practice some of the common steps within a group of other new dancers?

These sessions are for you! Mary Bennett and Mairy Beam will provide a gentle introduction to common steps such as slip steps, grapevine, waltz, side steps etc. We’ll teach the steps separately and then select several of the more straightforward dances that use that step so you can try it out within the context of a few dances.

This first of two sessions will focus on dances that are mainly about stepping–forward, backward, sideways.

Mary will be the facilitator.

An introduction to Sacred Circle Dance

If you’ve been considering coming out for circle dance, you might enjoy these two introductory sessions. We’ll go really slow, teaching specific steps and practising them a lot before moving on. If you’re interested but can’t make these sessions, contact us at and we can set up other times (for instance on a Sunday after the service or a short session before a circle dance gathering.
