Solstice Dance Thursday,
New Year Party Early Bird

Dear Dancers

Solstice Dance 

Horfield Parish Church Hall 
21 December, Thursday 8:00pm – 10:45pm 
with Bernadette Ryder & Dan Tomlinson

As last year, our Solstice Dance will be on Thursday not Friday and start 30 minutes earlier at 8pm – and this year we kick off the evening with a warm-up DJ set from our very own Dan Tomlinson :)Usual online & drop-in prices (though this one may sell out in advance) – booking is brisk. 

Do join us – and, if you are wondering about joining us to see in the New Year, it’s already more than half full – early bird places still available 🙂

All Love, 
Jon, for Bernadette & team xxx

P.S. This is the last class of 2023 – Friday nights restart Jan 5th.

Winter Solstice is a magical moment… a still point in the seasons… a pause before Mother Nature’s next breath. 

It’s a curious irony that Solstice falls in the madness our culture creates just before Christmas. On Thursday we invite you to step out of the mayhem, onto the dance floor, and align with the change of the season together. 

Solstice energy is latent, dormant, hidden, so moving with the Dark of the Year means stirring the deep parts of ourselves. We bring their dance to the surface, to find their shape, form, and what they have to tell us about the possibility of new growth.

New Year 5Rhythms Dance Party

St Michael’s Parish Hall 
31 December, 8:30-1:00am 
with Bernadette Ryder & special guest Miranda White*

We invite you to join us to transition into 2024, welcoming in the new year through the natural high of dance, spiced by moments of connectedness with other soulful party people.

We seek to create a powerful, beautiful and heartful event, with simple ceremony and dance. We’d love you to join us – it’s going to be full and juicy so book up early. We’d love you to join us, and look forward very much to dancing with you.

*5Rhythms Spaceholder and Teacher in Training – we’ve loved her previous visits especially for last year’s New Year Party 🙂
