Dear dancing friends
Welcome to our video collection. As you will see we have a wide, rich selection of traditional dances and modern choreographies from various parts of the world.
The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the need for a central resource, to assist teachers in their quest to support their dancers by keeping their Circle Dance groups running, often using online methods - quite a learning curve for many of us.
We were also aware that individuals might find themselves isolated, needing to find a way to keep their dance practice going. Two of our committee members, the mother and daughter team Rose Cross and Jenny Collins, responded to this need and have worked tirelessly to bring this collection together.
Our aim is to showcase a selection of the many and varied choreographies, from established and emerging choreographers, which have developed under the Circle Dance umbrella, as well as to enable the practice of traditional dances which help us enter the psyche of cultures other than our own.
We are so grateful to the teachers and choreographers who have given us permission to include their videos in this collection.
It is a truly generous act and we hope that, when more freedom of movement is possible, you will seek out the teachers whose work you admire and attend their workshops.
We hope that individual dancers and groups will derive support from the collection and trust that you will respect this resource and use it only for the purposes intended.
If you find our video resource helpful, please feel free to ‘like’ or add a comment on our CSCD Facebook page.
With love and blessings in the dance.
