Come and dance with the 5Rhythms community. 5Rhythms is a structured movement meditation practice. There are no steps to learn. Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms wave takes us through the five rhythms of Flowing to Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and then to Stillness.

So this is a group for all those who love or are interested in dancing 5Rhythms. It is a chance to move, dance and connect with others. It is not about dancing to look cool, rather it is your dance, your interpretation.

In a typical session we start with slow gentle music to arrive, stretch and begin to move. The music will then progress through one or more "waves" generally from slow to fast music back to slow forming the basis of the wave. The wave starts with the first rhythm "flowing" and then as we get a stronger beat through "staccato", then getting faster until we go into "chaos", then out into the lighter "lyrical" and then slowing down into "stillness". However don't be concerned if you are dancing the "correct" rhythm as the music played will be your guide, just dance how the music moves you. The possible benefits will be individual to you, but many find dancing the wave allows them a chance to let go, away from the demands of day to day life. Certainly moving in this way can be healthy for the body and your mind too. 

We meet twice a month at the Bell dance studio Alton, this is a beautiful venue that is a converted chapel and has a wonderful sprung dance floor. 

The group is open to anyone (over the age of 18) and any ability. Just bring yourself and desire to move!

The group has been running for over a year now and on average we get over 10 people dancing per session. Hopefully as the group grows we may choose to meet more often, so we invite you to become a member and join in.

The group was started by Gay Murphy, a 5Rhythms trained teacher who regularly takes the 5Rhythms classes at Alton. Some sessions are "5Rhythms Sweats" - where there is no "direction" and we simply dance the wave music, these are held by 5Rhythms space holder James Hogan.
