Far Horizons is delighted to welcome back the Bay Area Sacred Circle Dancers. A favorite at camp since 1987,this program provides magical opportunity for us to reclaim a cornerstone of our human heritage – the joy of community dance
Sacred Circle Dance is a program for dancers and non-dancers alike. Each dance is taught first, requiring no partners or special skills. These dances are drawn from the folk traditions of many cultures including Celtic, Balkan, Israeli, Rom (Gypsy), the Americas (Native American, Shaker, Cajun, as well as Mexico and Canada), and more.
There are Sacred Circle Dance groups in northern California, Tennessee, New England, and all over Canada and Western Europe. We invite you to join us and get caught up in the movements and rhythms of the planet.
The Bay Area Circle Dancers have danced regularly for more than 25 years, and at Far Horizons almost every summer since 1987. Marina and John Bear founded the group, and were joined a few years later by Maureen Atkins. At Far Horizons, we dance all day, from sunrise meditation dances on Gwen’s Rock to lively sessions in Hull Hall to late night dancing and chanting around the roaring campfire.
