 5Rhythms "Change" discription

This time, Kobe weekend workshop is CHANGE. not transformation.

Transformation sounds like metamorphose or getting better taste. but "Change" is just change. there is no good or bad. I really like this because good or bad is super subjective.

 this time, Yes we dance a lot though, I would say I would LOVE to put more theatrical stuff which is my speciality and my fab part!

honestly, for me, "What the 5Rhythms is?" theatrical part is most charming essence not only "DANCE". this is a movement thorough body. this is body experience movement, art and philosophy. this shows me the world. it's like mirrors of my soul. so, can not skip theatrical part. 

you are bigger than the box named of "SELF"

let's play yourself more!if you tend to put yourself into the box, and you can't quit to putin... why don't you change box itself?

allow to be variety of you.

find "NEW YOU" in fun play!

 the "fun playing" is re-play of your life.

express yourself intentionally in front of somebody, this is exactly "PLAY"

5Rhythms "Light and Shadow" description

「Darkness is womb of the stars」

I love this saying.

Yin and Yan, Light and Shadow, there is no make sense if I lost one.

Everything has light and everything has shadow. actually strong light make strong shadow. this is super true even we don't talk about physics, kinder kids knew.

light / shadow, positive / negative, those are simply difference of top and tail.

but the world are so "POSITIVE" oriented. "Let's become light!"

I know, I agree a part of it though, if you don't know both, it's like you are living in the cardboard house.

this is simply RANGE. integrate both, become a whole.

when you found and how to deal with your shadow, that would be a greatest strength. 

 Let's dance with curiosity! we approach with fun and a lot of humor!

this is including some theatrical approach too, so if you have, please come black dance / yoga / sports dress please.
