The Circle is a universal symbol of wholeness and unity. Dancing in a circle is one of the most ancient ways in which people community and togetherness. Many of the dances were brought to Britain as 'Sacred Dances' by Bernard Wosien, a German ballet teacher, who travelled widely in Greece, Serbia and Croatia, where the old round dances were, and still are kept alive, and was struck by the sacred quality and symbolism that their ancient steps and rhythms expressed.

Circle dancing is now well established in Wales and aborad and the dance repertoire has greatly increased in the past 20 years. The aim is to create a sense of well-being and communion with others, inviting a sense of wholeness into our lives through the dance. Come and have a go!
