The Dance of Life’
We consider the power of dance to build community and its spiritual importance. To mark the 70th Anniversary of the Rona Hart Dance School which has seen generations of young dancers pass through our Chapel Hall, we will enjoy performances by some of the current students. We will also celebrate the life of Rona Hart, who sadly passed away last weekend.
