What we're about

‘IF YOU DON'T DANCE YOUR DANCE, WHO WILL?' ‘ Gabrielle Roth

Come and dance for fun, wellbeing, interaction, to let go, free your mind, explore your creativity, self-awareness, acceptance, personal growth or healing. Everyone is welcome regardless of culture, gender, age, shape, experience and fitness. There are no steps to follow.

‘YOU ARE HOW YOU MOVE’ Gabrielle Roth

WHAT IS THE 5RHYTHMS PRACTICE ?
The music guides and connects you to your energy flow by following your breath, listening to and allowing your body to move freely in its unique rhythm at its own pace. Dance by yourself or with others if and when you want to. The practice follows a continuous cycle which represents facets of ourselves and life itself through the energies of ‘Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical & Stillness’. Each rhythm is a gateway for you to spontaneously explore your individual expression and movement and be true to your body, heart, mind, soul and spirit.

‘WE DANCE...TO SHED THE PAST, FORGET THE FUTURE AND FALL INTO THE MOMENT FEET FIRST..’ Gabrielle Roth
