The Spiral Dance takes place on our last day of school before the Winter Break. Our whole community comes together on the soccer field to participate in this time-honored GMS tradition. Parents and families are invited to bundle up and join this outdoor gathering along with all of the faculty and students.
In this celebration of community, we join together in one giant circle, then walk, skip and dance hand-in-hand to festive music forming a free flowing spiral that winds toward the center and then back out again. As the spiral slowly unwinds back out to a circle, each person passes every other person in the gathering with a chance to exchange a smile and share season’s greetings or well wishes for the new year. The activity is followed by fellowship and more freestyle dancing on the soccer field.
