5Rhythms Series 3: Release
I am excited to offer this short series of 5Rhythms classes at the Waldorf School. Each class will involve dancing at least one 'Wave' but will also focus on each of the 5Rhythms in turn so the classes can be taken as a 'course'. (This week it is Chaos.) You can save by paying for the whole course (details below) or you can drop in. Totally new to the 5Rhythms? Want to dip your toes in first? -You can come to this first class for only $10 and still get the cheaper rate for the rest. The 5Rhythms® of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness form ‘The Wave’, a simple movement meditation practice that encourages each of us to get more deeply in touch with our experience, find our unique expression, release ourselves, and expand our being in connection to others. The Rhythms are different ways of moving that are related to different ways of being in the world. As we practice them, we dance into life: we bring more of ourselves –body, heart, mind & soul- into movement, on the dance floor & out in the world. DETAILS 1. Dates: Wednesday evenings, June 6, 13 & 20 + July 4 & 11 (NO CLASS on June 27) 2. Time: 7.00 - 9.00 pm 3. Cost for Full Series of five classes: $80 (You can pay with cash or check at the door or online now at https://dance-into-life-5rhythms.ticketleap.com/waldorf-school-series-1/) Drop-in: $20 per class. New to 5Rhythms: $10 this first class and you can buy the remaining four for $60. [Meetup RSVPs are welcome but do not count as pre-booking!] 4. NO OUTDOOR SHOES in the room! 5. *[masked] for door. Richard Jerram brings heart, humor, and seventeen years’ experience as an accredited teacher. He discovered the 5Rhythms in 1996 and has taught classes and workshops for groups of 2 to 120 dancers in London, Lisbon and Melbourne (including groups of Buddhists and Quakers). Richard moved to Philadelphia from the UK in March 2008 and has now moved to Baltimore. He teaches regularly in Maryland.

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).
