Circle Dances

Circle dances come from the wonderful tradition of communities dancing together, a tradition which is timeless in origin and yet relevant today in its capacity to foster togetherness.  Dancing in a circle actually benefits the mind, body, and spirit.

“It is a very accessible form of dance for people of all ages and abilities, with the emphasis on participation, not performance” (Michaelsen).

Tips for parents:

Remember the fun of making a circle and singing “Ring Around the Rosie” when you were a child?  That fun lives on nearly every week in a Kindermusik class where we do all kinds of circle and group dances together.

But you don’t have to be in class to enjoy a circle dance – even just two people can make their own circle and dance to their own song or a favorite recording.  You’ll still experience the same wonderful benefits whether it’s two or a whole class dancing in a circle together.
