The Circle is probably the oldest known dance formation on earth. In traditional societies, people used music and dance to experience the sacred.
They brought the rhythms of the natural world into their bodies, hearts and minds
and brought them to life in dance.
Sacred Circle Dance rediscovers these ancient dance traditions, bringing us together to share life and encounter the sacred through movement

Tarleton is known across the country as a sacred circle dance leader. We are bringing her from North Carolina for this special event.

 

We will gather at 4:00 and dance from 4:30 to 6:30, ending in a candlelight dance.
