Dancing in circle is nourishment for the body and soul. It holds many gifts for the dancer, creating a deeper connection to self, each other and our beautiful planet.

 

Each dance is taught separately; no previous experience is necessary.  Wear comfortable clothing and soft shoes (or dance barefoot!).

 

 

1pm: Culinary Demo the HERB GARDEN

During the demo the Herb Garden will demonstrate how easy it is to cook with herbs by making an easy Chipotle-Lime Chimichurri sauce that can be used on nearly anything!

 

Using fresh herbs is one of the easiest (and cheapest) ways to take a dish from basic to gourmet. But for most, incorporating fresh herbs can be daunting. We will show you how easy it is to add a ton of flavour to your meals and as a bonus there are significant health benefits when you cook with fresh herbs.
