5Rhythms was introduced in Belgium over 20 years ago and we have thriving dancing communities throughout the country.

Since 2001 the own teachers community has been growing and at the moment there are 16 teachers active in both French and Flemisch communities and their activities are complemented by another 10 international guest teachers who visit us regularly.  Still open to a broad input from international teachers worldwide, many dancers from all over Europe and beyound have come along and added a special flavour, feeling at home in this community. What is has to offer : humbleness, grounded, friendly & heartful and diversity.  Wherever you live in Belgium, whether you speak Dutch, French or English, within a one hour drive you can attend several classes around the week, and workshops of all levels, around the year.

Upcoming Workshops


Antwerp - 15 Feb 2019 to 17 Feb 2019
Thierry Francois

This 5 Rhythms workshop is an opportunity to gather up as men amongst men, simply as we are. So we can create some safe space, safe enough that we can start having a deliberate and intentional act of movement that can lead us toward momentum.Momentum demands movement, maybe a small step, but a step forward. That is how momentum starts. It’s the single spark that ignites the wildest fire. This workshop may be scary for some men. Sharing the same space, unease, challenge, vulnerability, struggle. A place where anger and frustration arises but by giving attention to each other will create a bond. A bond that will help us break through. Breakthrough is inevitable and so worthy. Moving forward together, whatever we are at, whatever we face, whatever we are up to, but with the assurance that the map of 5 Rhythms holds us. The support of other men around will carry us with care. Then we just need to bring purpose and intention and follow our true calling. Follow , Focus, Surrender, Effortlessness, Wisdom … there is healing in that path.
