Dance the Circle Round


Traditionally used in communities where dancing was part of every village gathering, circle dance enables us to connect with each other in a moving mandala. A wide variety of music, rhythms and styles of dances from around the world will support our dance. Our feet tread patterns both ancient and modern as the circle turns. In this way, we create the magic of dancing together, moving as one, yet distinct as individuals.

Dancers will experience a range of dances illustrating the theme of the weekend, hear the tale of Scheherazade, and enjoy various additional elements that enhance the flavour of the weekend and our time together. There will be time to unwind and enjoy the height of summer at Hawkwood, and there will be opportunities to attune, meditate, and share with the group.
