  1. Do I need an invitation to join in? You don’t need a special invitation to join in, you can come and go when you want!
  2. What should I wear? While there are no strict dress codes, it is advisable to dress respectfully and comfortably.
  3. I’ve never joined a round dance before. What do I need to know? For dancing, gather in a circle. Hold hands with the people on either side of you, with your left hand facing up and your right hand facing down. You can jump in anywhere in the circle and at any time during a dance. Step left with your left foot and then side your right foot next to it.
