Circle Dance for Wellbeing

Please contact Janet directly by email or phone to find out when the sessions will resume. Hopefully it will be Autumn 2022.

Fortnightly group on the 2nd & 4th Wednesday of the month

Circle dance is an easy meditative dance to songs and folk tunes from around the world. We dance in a circle and hold hands. No experience necessary but this is a light exercise class so you need to be able to stand and move independently for the whole session. Come join the joy of the dance!
