Brigitte Evering is coming to Vancouver in September.
Here’s the plan for Friday September 15 at the Unitarian Centre.
Afternoon for circle dance facilitators or experienced dancers considering facilitation.
Evening – open to all
I’m looking forward to learning from her experience and passion for dance. Stay tuned for more opportunities.
Here’s more about Brigitte:
Brigitte has been sharing her love of circle dance since 1996. She and her partner Geoffrey co-facilitate a circle in Cobourg, dance in Ontario and the US, as well as being familiar faces at Great Lakes Dance Camp. Brigitte’s clear and skillful teaching allows dancers to access a wide range of traditional and choreographed dances. She has danced across North America as well as in the UK and Australia gathering dances like friends, to share with her communities. Her joyful fire invites dancers to warm themselves with dances from the simple and sweet, to faster and fancy. Come…join in the dance… let’s affirm life together!
The Cobourg group uses a “dance palette” approach–all possible dances are put on a flip chart – way more than could possibly be danced!
Then the ones that are danced are underlined and voted on. Someone stands near the flip chart at the break and end so that people less familiar with the dances can say, “I loved the one where we walked backwards” (or whatever) and they can learn what the name is. I’d love to try this at one of our circles. Maybe when Brigitte is here in Vancouver.
Here’s Brigitte’s blog about her Ph.D. work at Trent University.
Sacred Dance – Friedel Kloke-Eibl (see below for information from her website)
We did the Serenade for Spring dance choreographed by Friedel in Ladner in April.
There are beautiful videos of Friedel dancing with a group on her youtube channel. Mesmerizing! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCn98l37u_Kfs8Q7qsogOm_w
For those who love the sound of Joro Boro, wait! There’s more!
Dancing with the Moon (3:51) is also choreographed by Stefan Freedman.

Barbara Herring will be here in BC from Ontario during early June and will be at the Unitarian Centre for two events.
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.
I’m looking forward to dancing this circle dance Crescent Moon choreographed by Barbara Herring from Ontario. Actually perhaps I’ve danced it before as Barbara’s been out here in Vancouver multiple times. I love the music, which is a track called Coyita on the CD Ronroco by Gustavo Santaolalla.
We’re dancing this one on Friday in Ladner. I know we’ve done it before. Lovely.
