Circle Dance

[Dec 29]

Join us this Sunday, December 29th, 3-6:30 pm for our special Return of the Light & New Years Circle Dance Celebration

Come join us at the Mendocino Recreation Center, School and Pine Streets in Mendocino, from 3-6:30 pm. Candles will light the darkness at this New Years/Winter Solstice celebration and there will be a break for holiday snacks. Bring finger food to share if you can. If you want to dress the part wear a white outfit under a black or dark over garment so you can embody the darkness and the rebirth of the light! But no dress-up is necessary, and Gwen will bring extra white and black garments if you feel moved in the moment! 

No experience or partners necessary! All dances are taught before each dance. There will be a wealth of dances, some very simple, some beautifully layered and complex. Please tell your friends to come. Not dancing is totally fine. This is a very nice place to be to nurture and celebrate Community and the hope that comes with the lengthening days and a new year. A small donation is requested to help with the room rent. For further information, contact Devora at 937-1077 or or Gwen at or 964-2411.

Circle Dance groups are a grass roots phenomenon. There are hundreds of dance circles in The US, England, and throughout the world. The Mendocino group has been dancing every month for 15 years. As one dancer put it, “We are doing what people have been doing for millennia, on beaches, in forest glens, around campfires-- dancing together in circles to express their joy, their passion, their solidarity, their pain, their faith.” For further information visit our website at:
