Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms®


Gabrielle Roth is the creator of the 5Rhythms® Dance practice. Watch this video (3.5 minutes) to hear her talk about the practice and see for for yourself what it can look like. The 5 Rhythms are Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness. These are five distinct qualities of movement that together make up the Wave®. Dancing a Wave is what you will do at one my 5Rhythms classes.

People have always danced. Dance has been part of human life since the very beginning, since the first people danced around their fires in ritual, prayer and celebration. We have evolved over time and dance has evolved with us. Countless dance forms have emerged, and dancing has become a vital part of our social and cultural lives. 
What is it like to drop all these forms and dance freely, to abandon ourselves to the big beat of LIFE?

Some people think they "can't dance", that they have "two left feet" and feel awkward or self-conscious about it. 5Rhythms is great because we can get beyond all of that and just dance, experiencing the pleasure and benefits it brings. Life is dancing all around us and calling on us to join in!

I hope you will be able to come along to one of my classes and try it out for yourself!
