Barbara Herring will be here in BC from Ontario in April and will be at the Unitarian Centre on Monday, April 9th. There will also be a Tuesday April 10th event in Ladner. Check with firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
I, Mary, am coordinating the afternoon and potluck dinner. Corinne will be working with Barbara for the regular 2nd Monday evening.
Barbara is considered one of the “Grandmothers” of Circle Dance in Canada. Two of her dances are on our favourites list.
- Blessed Be
- Go In Beauty
Other lovely choreographies of Barbara’s we have danced are
- Crescent Moon
- Holy Mother
- Dancing Song
- I Am the Land
- Loved By a Star
- Who By Fire
Barbara will likely share some of her favorite dances and other facilitators will share as well so she can have the pleasure (her request!) to just dance with us.
Come experience the calmness, joy and reverence that Barbara Herring brings to the dance. Barbara has been a facilitator of Sacred Circle Dance groups in Canada and the USA since 1996 and during that time has been midwife to the birth of many groups in her home province, Ontario.
Barbara has developed a unique model of community co-leadership, where all dancers are welcome to share in teaching and leading the dance and has mentored many Circle Dance facilitators. She was featured in a documentary segment of the Canadian television program “Body, Mind and Spirit”.
Barbara is listed at globaldance with both Peterborough and Toronto
Barbara has choreographed many circle dances. I think of them as easy-to-learn but often with a little bit of a twist for interest.
We’re planning an afternoon or over-dinner discussion time–topics to be posted here. Stay tuned!
