Indigenous Peoples worldwide gather in the circle formation in order to recognize the equality of everyone in the circle. Black Elk, Lakota Elder says, “The Earth is a Circle. The Sun and Moon are formed in a Circle. The nests of birds are created in a Circle.” Taught by an award-winning, internationally recognized choreographer and dancer, this workshop will examine the prevalence of circles in nature and the importance of circles within our own lives. We will learn traditional sequences using Native American hoops, experiment with our own dance sequences, and use creative writing exercises to deepen and reflect on our experiences.
