Come and dance the 5Rhythms® Wave with us in Pimlico, London on Tuesday evenings. Every week, we offer a very warm welcome for you. Each week one of us, Catherine Bessin, Judit Juhasz or Paul Smith, teaches the class. There’s no need to book, just show up and pay on the door. 

Let’s join together to celebrate life and our innate potential. Each Tuesday we dance together in devotion to our inner selves, in a group practice that honours and welcomes all. A non-verbal movement practice that allows one to be more present with what is, to express through movement what needs to be expressed, to transform, and to find some form of completion in the dance. 

The five rhythms of the wave are: flowing, grounded in the feet; staccato, grounded in the hips; chaos, letting go of the head; lyrical, where the dance extends out through the hands into the wider space; stillness, where we don’t stop moving but we’re moved by the breath. Each of us leads the class in our own unique way, but we always follow this same map. Beginners are welcome, as are experienced dancers. There is nothing to get right or wrong, just come with an openness to let the music be your guide and your teacher.

This is a substance-free space. Please bring your willingness to move, some layered clothes that allow you to sweat, and to keep warm, and a bottle of water so you stay hydrated. Most people dance in bare feet, so outdoor shoes may not be worn on your dance floor. Please leave your words and electronic devices outside.

"The five rhythms are a map to everywhere you want to go, on all planes of consciousness - inner and outer, forward and back, physical, emotional, and intellectual. They are markers on the way back to a real self, a vulnerable, wild, passionate, instinctive self." GABRIELLE ROTH

Judit Juhasz

I am a passionate dancer and I love shaping my inner world through movement. I am in my element when I am able to trace what is alive in me and allow my body to express it and find precise movements that best describes my experience. Meeting the dance floor felt like coming home: recalling my teenage years – cracking up the volume and dancing my insides out-just like in my bedroom.

Catherine Bessin

Music and Dance are my life-long passions. Life’s mystery, energy, the body, movement, nature, the cosmos have always fascinated me. My journey has been one of re-connecting with our ability to heal and transform through various practises involving movement and energy work. The 5Rhythms is the most powerful medicine I have encountered and has led me on a wonderful, life-saving, transformative and healing journey.

Paul Smith

When I began dancing the 5Rhythms, well over two decades ago, it didn’t take long for it to become a central part of my life; attending classes regularly, I was always hungry for more of what this dance gave me, the sense of community, the freedom of expression, the presence of being, and the music. The core of my practice has been to dance the 5Rhythms - beginning just after the millennium. The first regular class I attended was in North London, where Sue Rickards has held space for some 30 years.
