Exploring Our Roots in Community
April 26-28, 2019
Guided by Bobbi Bailin & Kayla Dauphine
Circle dance is rooted in community. Traditionally it was one’s responsibility to go and dance at certain times of importance to the community. It brought people together, and through a deep sense of connection, it gave people purpose and a known place in the world. Maybe you couldn’t prevent certain things from happening in certain situations, but by dancing together in prescribed ways you could still contribute to the overall health of the community.
Whether we’re doing traditional dances or newly choreographed dances, do you think it is still important for us to understand this underlying purpose rooted in traditional dance? At this gathering we will explore through dance and discussion just how vital this deep sense of connection and community may be to our dance circles.
This gathering is designed to support both aspiring new circle dance teachers and experienced teachers. The energy exchange is by donation to help sustain Neskaya’s mission and beautiful sacred space.
Stay tuned for more details.
