Do you want to open your creative channel and discover your own creativity both on and off the dance floor? Do you want to move holistically and exercise for the body, heart, and mind? Do you need to discharge tension and drop the weight off your shoulders? Are you looking for the ever-so-elusive peace of mind, and a more open, connected, and present way of being? Do you want to dance, but choreographies and learning steps ain’t your thing?

Welcome to 5Rhythms classes to embody your creativity and connection as well as to discover your inner compass – the voice inside you whispering its wisdom. Discover rest in motion and movement that stirs your soul. Light your spark and light up the dark! 5Rhythms is a dynamic movement meditation and a creative embodied practice that welcomes everyone, all bodies of all shapes, sizes, ages, and ranges of ability. No previous experience is required, simply curiosity and an openness and willingness to explore your own movement. Join us on a journey of discovery into the landscape of the body and breath, to release your wildness, unearth your passion, dive into your still presence.

The 5Rhythms comprise five different movement qualities or “rhythms” that guide and support us as we explore moving and dancing. They provide the framework for improvised, un-choreographed dance that arises from the moment, from the body, intuition, senses. The weekly class is an opportunity to return home into yourself, empty out and fill up. Classes are open to everyone over 15 years old. No previous experience necessary.

Karoliina Valontaival holds space with clarity, presence, sensitivity, and heartfulness. She creates a safe and accessible space that welcomes you as you are.

This is a drop-in class: no preregistration required. Beginners and new dancers are always welcome!

Physical limitations are not a hindrance to the dance: you can dance on a chair or on the floor and discover your own style of dancing, even with a physical limitation. 5Rhythms accommodates all levels of physical ability. However do please get in touch with me before hand if you have a major physical limitation.

Mental health: dance and movement are very beneficial for our mental and emotional well-being. If you are or you have recently had a severe or acute mental health issue (e.g. schizophrenia), please read the FAQ in the customer service page and contact me before coming to an open class, so we can ensure a positive experience for all.

Refund Policy

Cancellation policy for a single class: if you cancel at least 3 days (72 hours) before the start of the class, you can transfer your place to another class or with no additional charge. Alternatively, if you want to fully cancel your place, we will charge a 25% cancellation fee and reimburse 75% with a gift card for our online shop. If you cancel less than 3 days before the start of the class, we will unfortunately not make transfers or refunds. Except in the case of injury or illness or other force majeure event, please 1) show a doctor’s note etc and 2) let us know by 9 am the day of the class (and you will have the previously mentioned options).

The last option is: if you can’t come yourself, you can name someone as your replacement at no additional cost. You must do this by 9 am on the day of the class. We will not accept changes or cancellations after this time. You must find the replacement person and sort out the money between you.

The dance pass is valid for one season. It is for personal use only. The dance pass is non-exchangeable, non-refundable and non-transferable. An exception is a case of serious injury or illness, which results in at least half of the classes being unused: then the valid until date on the card can be extended by written agreement if 1) the customer is in touch about this before the dance pass expires and 2) provides a doctor’s statement or other explanation of their life event.
