A relaxing break in community, with international circle dancing sessions led by Kathryn Penny, well known for her skilled but approachable way of teaching.

She has an amazing range of music and dances from many parts of the world. Some are simple and meditative, others more intricate or energetic.

Many flow with a strong sense of the individuals in the circle losing their self-consciousness about footwork or hand movements, tuning in to a palpable sense of oneness.

No dance is obligatory! If you’re new to this you will find good support from Kathryn and other dancers with more experience.

We hope to visit the magical dance lawn on Tamarisk Farm again (pictured above) for one dance session.

(Non-dancing friends or partners who share your bedroom are also welcome to this event.)

Second Adult Discount: A second adult who shares your bedroom can come half price
