Circle Dance Retreat at Minsteracres

Join us for a transformative Circle Dance Retreat at Minsteracres Retreat Centre.  

This season, we are thrilled to introduce an exciting programme designed to awaken your senses, encourage your self expression and inspire your imagination through the universal language of music and dance.   Join us for a Circle Dance Retreat with leader Joyce McAndrew, to embark on a joyful experience to connect with yourself and others through movement and music.  

What is a Circle Dance Retreat?

The ancient tradition of circle dancing, has held prominence globally, as being an expressive cultural medium to celebrate, strengthen and draw communities together. Circle dance can be both energetic and lively but also a gentle and reflective movement. 

This day retreat therefore celebrates the beauty of music intertwined with the grace of responsive movement. It is an invitation to explore how these elements can serve as powerful tools for non-verbal self-expression, enhancing health and wellbeing and igniting the imagination.

A Dance of Tradition and Contemporary

Throughout the retreat, participants will have the opportunity to explore and learn both traditional and contemporary dance movements. The carefully crafted sessions are designed to guide you through continuous sequences that follow a meditative and contemplative pattern.  Music ranges from classical to contemporary to further enhance the experience  – these movements are not just steps to be followed; they are expressions of inner feelings, moods, and stories waiting to be told through the power of movement.

Reflective Readings and Contemplative Spaces

To enrich the experience, the day retreat will be punctuated with reflective readings that resonate with the themes of music and dance. These moments of reflection will provide an opportunity to pause, ponder, and connect with the emotions and revelations stirred by the movement. It’s an opportunity to explore the spaces within that often go unnoticed, promoting self reflection and self expression.  

As part of the day retreat, lunch and refreshments will be provided, allowing time to share conversations, and enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Minsteracres.
