An event every month that begins at 3:00 pm on day Last of the month, repeating indefinitely
Dance is one of the oldest ways in which people celebrate community and togetherness, and the circle is the oldest dance formation. Circle Dance mixes traditional folk dances with new choreographies set to a variety of music both ancient and modern. Dances can be slow and meditative or lively and energetic. No experience or partners necessary! All dances are taught before each dance.
Circle Dance groups are a grassroots phenomenon. There are hundreds of dance circles in the U.S., England, and throughout the world. The Mendocino group has been dancing every month for decades. As one dancer put it, “We are doing what people have been doing for millennia, on beaches, in forest glens, around campfires—dancing together in circles to express their joy, their passion, their solidarity, their pain, their faith.”
Circle Dance convenes the fourth Sunday of each month from 3-5:30 pm, except the December gathering, which is held 3-6 pm.
