June Watts – Honouring her 31 years of Danceshops
June Watts our beloved Circle Dance teacher, mentor, dancing sister and friend has been facilitating danceshops on the West Coast of Canada (in both B.C. and Alberta) for 31 years (since 1987)! We’ve been so blessed to dance with her on the West Coast and some of us have travelled to dance with her in other locations around the world. She is an amazing facilitator, so dedicated to the dance who like no other teacher has infused it with such a unique sense of spirit. She is known for her beautiful and ceremonial ‘White Nights’ and has written one of the few books about Circle Dance – Circle Dancing: Celebrating the Sacred in Dance. June definitely brings the Sacred to our Dance and she is not only loved and appreciated by so many dancers here in Western Canada but many other dancing places.
