Meredith Davies was the first teacher to start a weekly 5Rhythms class in Melbourne in 2003. Five years later Madhuma Thompson began a second weekly class and initiated a monthly Sweat Your Prayers, and now more than a decade later, with Meredith’s husband David Juriansz joining the teaching field, they have grown a huge dancing tribe. The weekly ‘Tuesday Tsunami Wave’ in North Fitzroy may be one of the biggest weekly 5R classes in the world ~ a pulsating, deep ride for over 150 dancers. With sometimes 6 classes a week, workshops with international teachers, 3 local teachers and more in training, Melbourne is a vibrant 5Rhythms dance community.
Friday night 6-9pm
Saturday & Sunday Afternoon 3-6.30pm
In this online workshop we'll work with our own unique flavours, and the layering of movement that we bring to our 5Rhythms dance practice. Beginning with the simple ingredients of the body parts - we'll combine an understanding of dynamic alignment and dynamic efforts, to explore and create new textures and forms in our expression. As we work through our rhythmic recipe, we'll move in ways we have never thought possible before. As we move beyond our patterns and usual limitations, you'll be invited to research your feelings and sensations, connecting to experiences of pleasure and joy.SCHRIJF JE VANDAAG IN!
We're always in a constant state of flux, traveling and traversing from our essential selves to our shadow selves -- a place where if we stay too long our ego starts to run the show. It is our constant struggle and our shamanic task to create a personal awareness of our shadow places and spaces.
The Waves map of the 5Rhythms offers our bodies the keys to transform our shadows into movement, from frozen to fluid, from tense to focused, from disoriented to free. Moving these shadows on the dance floor, inviting an exploration to bring our body and our actions back into alignment with our head and our hearts, becoming a unified being in our every day lives -- that sweet emptiness that serves and is served with divine curiosity, utter surrender, endless permission, and love.
We were all born to be comfortable in our own skin.
