Christian started dancing clandestinely in his bedroom as a teenager, before discovering the twin movement pathways of raving and Tai Chi. Coming across the 5Rhythms in 1998, he felt he had come home. He learned the practice intensively with Gabrielle Roth, Jonathan Horan, Alain Allard and Ya'Acov & Susannah Darling Khan, among others, eventually training with Gabrielle in 2004-05.
He also studied Movement Medicine from its inception and is core faculty for the School of Movement Medicine, whilst remaining very much a teacher and deep explorer of the Rhythms as a core practice and life-support system. His experience also spans Taoism, meditation, Amerta movement (the work of Suprapto Suyodarmo, aka Prapto) shamanic practice (with Chris Luttichau, Malidoma Somé and others) and Processwork/Worldwork (the psychology and deep democracy work of Arnie & Amy Mindell)
Born in Switzerland and having lived in England most of his life, he lives in Devon, holds a thriving dance community in London and travels where the wind takes him.
He is also a DJ, artist, dad and occasional activist.
Christian is the creator of the dancingTao project and the Ecstasy Radio waves podcast.
