Brigitte Evering

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!

Dance Palette BEFORE

The Cobourg group uses a “dance palette” approach–all possible dances are put on a flip chart – way more than could possibly be danced!

Dance Palette AFTER

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.
