Invitation, by Dee Brown
Our circle is open, to whom you may well ask?
The answer is no riddle, it’s written in our past.
From early days of dancing in Findhorn’s sacred home
It travels across oceans from where new steps are born.
Stonehaven Group Profile, by Pamela Affleck
Stonehaven Circle Dance started on 16th Jan this year. Nine dancers generously came to support us from Cupar, the group where I regularly dance. This meant that we started with a lovely big circle of 30 dancers. During our first term we’ve averaged 19 local dancers every week. We meet for an hour and a half from 10 to 11.30 on Wednesday mornings with a tea/coffee break at about 10.45. We dance a variety of dances and are really still finding our feet as to what works best. It’s a bit of fun trying on different dances to see which ones fit and which ones we need to grow into!

Children in Need, Cupar
Here’s an article from The Herald and St Andrews Citizen about the Cupar group's Children in Need fund-raiser. Many thanks to all of you who were able to attend, for your support and very generous donations.
Judy Harvey's Road to the Isles, by Diana Treffry
On the road to the isles Judy certainly led us Over the Hills, into the Skye Boat Song and eventually onto the Dark Isle, but this was also a journey in all sorts of other ways - through dance - through life.
It began the moment each of us arrived (after our journeys, long or short, to Cupar) with warm greetings from Judy and on all the cafe tables she had arranged quotations from prose and poetry on the theme of journeying to set us in the mood. . .
Cupar group's youngest circle dancer, by Rose Cross
Introducing the Cupar group's youngest circle dancer Cara Laura-Jean Tully, aged 10 weeks, with Mum Jemma and Granny Janette.
Cara has been dancing since the age of 7 weeks and always joins in all the dances.
She particularly loves The Midwives Dance, which we danced especially for her at her first class.
Kinross end of term report, by Lynne Barlow
The end of term is here at last
For some of us that’s great
But others really like to dance
on each and every date.
Reports are out; you all did well,
but sometimes had a struggle,
Which foot is left which way is right,
It can be such a muddle.
