This class is led by Eve Corrin, and is part of our 60+ programme. It is held in the People's Gospel Mission Hall, which is accessible via the Fresh Youth Academy at HNCC, 25 Bertram Street, London N19 5DQ.
Dancing in a circle is an ancient tradition common to many cultures; marking special occasions, the seasons, strengthening community and encouraging harmony and peace. Circle Dance draws on the rich and diverse traditional dances of countries from all around the world; the Balkans, Greece, Russia, the Ukraine, and Israel, and our group has a growing repertoire of varied dances, both lively and meditative.
Some of our members have many years' experience of circle dance, but Eve takes us through the steps of each dance before bringing in the music, so new members can join in and soon pick up the steps. Our sessions are good exercise, but we also experience a sense of well-being and community.
Our 60+ classes are funded by donations in the range £1 to £5, which are collected and paid into HNCC's current account to support payment of tutor fees.
