Circle Dance

Contact: Pat Adams 

Circle Dance is accessible, varied, good exercise, fun and open to everyone. You don’t need a partner and each dance is taught.

The group dances to many different genres of music, classical and modern, traditional and popular, from many countries including France, Israel, Greece, Ukraine and Ireland. New rhythms and step patterns quickly become familiar – bouncy walks and flowing grapevines, limping slip-steps to a lyrical waltz – in different moods from playful to meditative, energetic to graceful, and many others.

The group meets from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m, in the Vestry, Tabernacle, in the Hayes.

New members are always welcome.

If you are interested and want to know more, please contact the group leader.

Everyone was new to circle dance at the beginning but now this is what some members say about it:

  • “Circle dancing is fun and something anyone can pick up.”
  • “It is a great way to keep physically fit and supple. It also gives me an emotional lift through listening to beautiful music and participating in an enjoyable social activity. The music is so melodious – not loud – it helps to relax and move in time.”
  • “Something wonderful happens as we progress as one in a circle to beautiful folk music of the world.”
  • “Some of these dances take me into another world – very meditative and transporting.”
  • “Addictive! My favourite U3A group, lovely music, great company and good variety of dances.”
  • “Circle dance exercises the parts of the body I didn’t know I had! Good for core strength and muscle tone – and fun!”
  • “Exercising the mind and body while having FUN!”
  • “The group atmosphere is friendly and non-judgemental.”
