The Centrepiece Session – History

As  a response to the Covid-19 virus Brant Bambery created an online session platform for Sacred / Circle / Traditional Dance to allow us to connect in this new situation.

My vision was to meet online via Zoom (online video conferencing) and even though we can’t dance in our local dance circles we can meet in our own living rooms. I’ve chosen Zoom as you can install it easily on any device and it has a free package.

The first session of “The Centrepiece” (02/03/20)

Was an amazing success, drawing a large number of our global Sacred Dance friends. It was great to have Laura Shannon and Shakeh Major Tchilingirian teach along with Sacred Dance teachers Kathryn Kusa , Katharina Kroeber and Francescea with her poetry (people have inquired about this and I have added a copy to the dance video folder) Such a delightful mix! Extra big thanks go out to all teachers – other sessions see below :
