Circle DancePhoto: Una Woodruff
Dancing in a circle is an ancient tradition common to many cultures for marking special occasions, strengthening community and encouraging togetherness.
The circle is probably the oldest known dance formation. It is found even today in the community dances of many cultures, including Arabic, Greek, African, Eastern European, Celtic, South American and North American Indian.
It is also used, in its more meditative form, in worship within various religious traditions, including, for example, the Church of England and other Anglican Churches and the Islamic Haḍra dances.Timetable
