 A place where you can DANCE :
• FREELY, without performing, following steps, routines or partnering with no expectations of what your dance should be or look like
• SAFELY within a diverse group who enjoy grounded, conscious, freeform movement dancing on their own and together with consent and respect

• Creating SPACE for yourself, moving from the inside out, engaging with others and sharing experiences which has a positive effect on mental and physical health and wellbeing

YOU ARE WELCOME whatever your age, gender, culture, ability,

experience, shape, fitness, physical and mental ability. This is a hybrid class so online dancer are welcome to join us on zoom.


Music and dance activate pleasure centers in the body and brain stimulating comfort, calm, relaxation, joy and empowerment as well as recalibrating the sensory and nervous systems. This class is inclusive and trauma informed


This is a new class in Suffolk so there may be many people dancing the 5Rhythms for the 1st time but, regardless of this, there is usually someone new who shows up. You will be guided by the music which follows a structure of changing rhythm and supported by my teaching to connect, listen to and allow your body to move freely, in its unique rhythm at its own pace creating your own choreography. Any self-consciousness, anxiety or resistance is natural and I will invite you to be curious, take it by the hand and dance with it if you can and see where it takes you. We will weave and move with what we bring collectively, have fun and inspire others. All ages and abilities are welcome and the more the merrier. I DJ the music live and play many different genres and welcome requests.

‘We have to learn to know what rhythm we are in, how to ride with it, how to shift, how to sense what rhythms others are in and how the different rhythms are complementary or discordant. We need to discover what rhythm predominates us – are we a flowing type, a chaotic type? What rhythms characterize the main people in our lives? We need to tune into the undulating rhythms of our days, our weeks, our months, our years.’ Gabrielle Roth, creator of 5Rhythms


I have recently moved to Suffolk.   I am a somatic trauma therapist & movement educator and have regularly danced the 5Rhythms for 25 years and taught weekly, community classes, ongoing groups, workshops and sessions at international conferences for 6 years and enjoy the creativity of creating classes and workshops for different organisations and groups to share the potential of this practice

One of the things I love about the 5Rhythms is the diversity that we bring and I look forward to sharing this illuminating, expressive journey of aliveness, connection and creativity with you.
