Circle Dancing holidays


Circle dance is open to all people who wish to share in the joy of dance. The dances are in circles, lines and spirals and range from the very simple to some more challenging. There is no need for a partner and all the dances are thoroughly taught.

We dance traditional dances from Eastern Europe, Armenia, Israel, Russia, France and Greece, as well as Gypsy and Klezmer dances. There are also newly choreographed circle dances, which often have a more meditative flavour.

Circle dancing is about laughter, exercise, joy, great music, community, fun, celebration and support. We dance to remember who we are and that we are part of the human family.

All circle dance holidays at Butterfly House are taught by experienced teachers.
