Circle Dances are held twice monthly on Saturdays or Sundays
at beautiful TIGG's Pond Retreat Center in Zirconia, NC or Brevard Yoga.
Beginners are welcome. New people join every time.
No previous dance experience or partner necessary.
The Circle is probably the oldest known dance formation on earth.
n traditional societies, people used music
and dance to experience the sacred.
They brought the rhythms of the natural world into their
bodies, hearts and minds
d brought them to life in dance.
Sacred Circle Dance rediscovers these ancient dance traditions, bringing us together to share life and encounter the sacred through movement.
Evidence suggests that circle dance arose in the Neolithic era dating to about 9500 BCE.
My dances normally last 2 hours. I like to begin and end on time. Afterward we may sit and visit,
or one may leave quietly.
While I sincerely support free speech, the circle dance is a politics free zone.
Each dance is taught first, the steps are simple and easy to learn. The dances are based on traditional dance steps from all over the world.We start out slowly, then progress to more challenging
and vigorous dances. All moves can be modified. There are "no mistakes" just modifications.
At last we slow down again and end with more quiet meditative dances.
Silence is held for a few moments after each dance and helps us stay out of our heads.
Talking is unnecessary, laughing is good, singing is great, having a uniquely wonderful time is what we're after.
Circle dances most appropriate for adults.
Mature children are welcome. Dress in comfortable clothing, layers are good, shoes are fine.
I hope to see you in the dance.
