5 Rhythms Dance

Five rhythms is a creative movement practice with no set steps. A moving meditation suitable to all bodies and souls that long to be free and love to dance.

The class begins with a warm-up in our own way then the teacher will guide us through a process of checking in with each of our body parts before working through the five rhythms of;

We usually dance in our bare feet and in comfortable clothing and drink plenty of water!

I have been dancing the five rhythms practice regularly for the last four years and its now a necessity for my mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health. I used to love clubbing, but don't enjoy many aspects to this now so I was so pleased to find a sae space where I can dance and release fully. I find five rhythms fun, sociable, meditative, ecstatic and a place I feel most fully 'me'.

I have introduced many friends and family to five rhythms and want to recommend it to anyone out there who loves dancing and longs to be free.
