What we're about

WELCOME TO THE 5RHYTHMS®

Created by Gabrielle Roth and practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms® is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages, cultures and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness, and awareness into action. Wherever the 5Rhythms are practiced, a community is born to dance, to sweat, to change, to support, and to provide a safe space for each of us to shatter the ego’s hold and awaken the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-walking, rock star part of ourselves that yearns to be free.

Creativity. Connection. Community.

The 5Rhythms® of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness form ‘The Wave’, a simple movement meditation practice that encourages us to find our own dance of embodied feeling and to discover ourselves at our most fluid and creative level, bringing more of ourselves –body, heart, mind & soul- into movement, on the dance floor & out in the world. There are no steps to learn and it can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age, fitness, ability, or experience.

There are currently two classes a month in Baltimore, on the 2nd & 4th Sundays 3.00 - 5.00 pm in Charles Village led by Richard Jerram. See also his new Website Dance Into Life (
http://danceintolife5rhythms.wordpress.com) which has details of other classes in DC and in Bethesda as well as more about the practice.

Check this site & look out for email notifications about extra classes & any schedule changes (they happen!).

Workshops: Every two months, approximately, often at the Baltimore Waldorf School in Cold Spring.

Many come to these classes by word-of-mouth and they are also advertised on Facebook etc, so not all attenders have joined the MeetUp. RSVPs can be helpful, but are not necessary!

You can find feedback from dancers under 'Past' and 'Recent Meetups' (we never rate classes ourselves).
