Victoria

The oldest 5Rhythms community in Australia, Melbourne is a must-dance destination for lovers of 5Rhythms.


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.

 Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.

Pablo Picasso


When do you shine the most?

For me, it’s those precious moments when I am unencumbered by judgement. With a group of friends, singing old pop songs late at night at the top of my voice, I am blissfully unconcerned of what others will think or say. Lost in the joy of the moment, the love of pure creative experience. Why are these moments so rare?

Perhaps, like me, you become self-conscious? Think too much? Work too hard? Take life too seriously, carrying responsibility like a heavy weight?

Take a day out & surf the Lyrical Light Waves with me. We’ll follow our joy, take risks, and embrace the unexpected with a sense of curiosity. We’ll shine brightly and dance with our shadows, experiencing a fullness of joy that doesn’t wallpaper over the cracks. You’ll improvise, expand your comfort zone, dance authentically and feel lighter for it. The 5Rhythms are a map to freedom that Gabrielle Roth calls “the DNA of the creative process”. Come dance, create and collaborate. Be the artist that never grows up.

5Rhythms is a catalytic dance practice, based on the creative flow of nature. Dancing each of the rhythms Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness offers us a map for understanding our body’s own inner waves, the rhythms of nature, and the rhythms of the creative process. 


In 2019 we are continuing to work through the book by Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estes - Women Who Run with the Wolves. We will be working with one archetypal feminine story at a time - and using it as our basis for an embodied inquiry and dance. Running with Wolves - Women's 5Rhythms - offers us a monthly ritual to honour ourselves, and our sisters. It's a bookclub with a twist, a turn, and a hop. It's a women's circle that moves the talk, and invites compassion and empathy - via the shaping and rhythmic qualities of the expressive body. 


Just like the wolf, the female psyche has often been misunderstood, feared, and hunted to near extinction.

Only now is the feminine way of being returning to our awareness. 


In this workshop we'll be reminded of our cyclic nature,

of the ebbs and flows of our creativity and of our spiralling unfolding pathway of our lives. We’ll dance and move together, to embody and reconnect with our physicality and to witness and honour this with our sisters. 


This is your invitation to track the movements and desires of your animal self, your deeper wisdom and to return to your fur-covered sensing self. This is your invitation to listen deeply. Do you hear the call?


Natalie Poole is a certified 5Rhythms teacher, Dance Movement Therapist, mother and birth attendant. She has worked in schools and various settings including universities, detention centres, hospitals and clinical settings. She teaches weekly classes in Melbourne and regular workshops in Australia and Europe.


Natalie has woven new maps for women to dance through their lunar/menstrual energies; their birthing/creative energies; and their empowerment/archetypal life energies and life cycles. Through her studies with Alexandra Pope (The Red School), Rhea Dempsey (Birthing Wisdom) and working with the archetypal stories of Dr Clarissa Pinkola Estes (Women Who Run with the Wolves), Natalie has absorbed the current principles of female wisdom, and interlaced these with the simple, and yet potent and catalysing map of Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms dance. Together these new maps form a carefully curated, sensitively synthesised, and richly multi-layered tapestry that form the basis for Natalie's women's moving medicine work. Dancing through, and embodying these maps, nurtures our well-being, our creativity and expression, and re-connects us to our essence and life-force.
