Our next meeting is on Thursday 11 April: Circle Dancing
This month, we’ll be joined by Sophia Hatch, who will be explaining some of the history of this style of dance, and leading us in a circle dancing workshop. Sophia has been teaching Circle Dance for over 30 years. She is also qualified as an Alexander Technique teacher since 1995, and brings a small flavour of this body work into her dance teaching. The circle dances we will learn are both traditional and recent from all over the world with an eclectic collection of music – from Bob Marley to Bach! There are easy steps to be learnt but ultimately the aim is to raise energy, have fun and reconnect with inner peace. A mix of tempo of dances will be done – both lively and finishing with easy meditative dances
There is no charge for members and guests are very welcome (£4 payable per guest).
Bradford Metropolitan Foodbank and red box project
We are continuing to collect items for the Foodbank. Bring along any non-perishable items you would like to donate (see their website for suggested items). We are also collecting sanitary wear for the red box project.
What will happen at the meeting?
The meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. in the hall at St Peter’s Church, Moorhead Lane. There’s always time to grab some refreshments (tea, coffee, wine and cake) and catch up with friends or meet new people, and the meeting itself will start at around 7:45 p.m.
We always start with a brief business meeting, led by our President Fiz. We’ll share news and future plans – it can be handy to have your diary with you to note down dates.
For the main part of the meeting we will take part in the circle dancing workshop. Please wear comfortable clothes and flat shoes! If you don’t want to join in the workshop, you are welcome to sit and watch and enjoy a cup of tea, coffee or glass of wine.
The meeting will finish at around 9 p.m.
I’m not a member – can I come?
Visitors are very welcome – come on your own, or with friends. Our members are very friendly and happy to chat, so you shouldn’t be left on your own! We range in age from mid-20’s to mid-80’s and come from all sorts of backgrounds, so don’t worry that you are ‘not the right type for WI’ – we are sure you are.
Our usual guest fee is £4. If you let us know you are coming we will look out for you and say hello!
What should I bring with me?
This month, please wear comfortable clothes and flat shoes.
It’s always useful to bring your diary, and a pen for signing up for social events.
We are continuing to collect items for Bradford Metropolitan Food Bank and the Red Box Project, so do bring along any food or sanitary products you wish to contribute.
