If  you love to dance this is for you!! 

But if you aren't sure of your skill or ability level, Circle Dance is very friendly to beginners. 
All dances are taught and many are very simple.

Circle Dance is growing movement around the world that makes folk dancing accessible and inviting even to the beginning dancer.  Dances range from traditional dances from around the world--Greek, Bulgarian, Armenian, Turkish, Brazilian, Celtic--to dances that have been created to explore musical traditions such as that captured in the beauty of a Hindu chant or the rhythms of African drums. 

Throughout history, not to mention prehistory, people have danced in circles.  It's a natural formation for dance--just think of Greek and Jewish wedding dances, English maypole dances, Native American dances around campfires:  it's everywhere!  That's because a circle brings people together in an expression of unity and community.  by Julia Lynam
