Bennington Dance Circle
Anyone can dance! Bring your friends to Nataraja, a monthly gathering for the local dance community on Friday, January 19, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at The Yoga Place, 532 Main Street, Bennington. This will be the last dance circle for the year as there will be no event in December. Nataraja was created out of a desire from and for dancers of any shape, size and ability to have a safe and fun place to find their artistic expression. Talking is kept to a minimum. Please bring your water bottle. Each person is encouraged to make a $5 donation, with the proceeds to be donated to Greater Bennington Interfaith Community Services. Call 802-442-5331 for more information.
