Join us for a residential weekend of



with  Chrisandra & Hazel Young

Friday August 11th to Sunday August 13th 2023

Dance into bliss. With exquisite music, from different world cultures and sacred traditions, we’ll dance moving mandalas to sacred chants/mantras, to find our own stillness and peace within.

Come for a special residential event at a wonderful, comfortable venue. The dances offered will be a blend of mostly gentle, meditative circle dances, to light up the heart and lift the spirit, with all the dances carefully taught and repeated for maximum benefit. If the weather is fine we shall be dancing outside for part of the programme.

The Woodbrooke Conference Centre, Birmingham, is a lovely venue with a very special ambience, and is situated in 10 acres of beautiful grounds. Our dancing space is a stunning panelled room surrounded by trees. Accommodation is mainly single ensuite rooms, (or if you prefer, twin/double shared rooms), and includes full board (vegetarian food offered at each meal and special diets catered for).

Visit to learn more about this wonderful place. Arrival is from 4.00pm on Friday 11th August, & we bid each other “au revoir” at 4:00pm on Sunday 13th August.
