Not many people have heard of circle dance. It was brought to this country from Eastern Europe in the seventies and has now spread to almost every country in the world. It is danced for fun, and provides a friendly atmosphere, gentle exercise and a feeling of delight in the movement, in the music and in the shared experience.

Dances are not fast or too difficult to remember, and the steps are taught anew every time. You don't need a partner. The music, sometimes in an unusual and interesting rhythm such as 5/4 or 7/8, is a mix of recorded tracks and live music provided by the resident band playing a mix of violin, cello, recorder, clarinet, accordion, guitar and percussion.

It takes place at the Quaker Meeting House, 150 Church Road, Watford, WD17 4QB at 7:30pm on the fourth Friday of the month. There is no religious aspect to the event.
