Easter Gathering 2010 - Street, Somerset
Every year since 1989, the network has organised a residential Easter Gathering for Circle Dance Teachers (both established and emerging), musicians and, in recent years, experienced dancers. The event usually runs from Friday evening to lunchtime on Easter Monday.
The weekend includes workshops offered by individual teachers and shared sessions, where participants can share a favourite dance. The schedule changes every year and can include dancing to live music, a co-created peace ritual on Easter Sunday, the Teachers Forum for questions, answers and sharing teaching experiences & advice, singing, and in fact (almost) anything that people want to bring & share.
There's also an open market for participants to bring CDs, books, cards and other dance-related items for sale.
As well as all this activity there's time to meet & chat, to put faces to names and to catch up with friends old & new.
During the course of the weekend the Circle Dance Friends Company AGM is held to which all are invited.
