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.

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. Each month will offer a different flavour, inviting us to dance the wisdom of the female archetypes, our cycles, and our ‘femaleness.’ In 2017 we will be working through the stories from Women Who Run with the Wolves - by Clarissa Pinkola Estes. By workshopping theses archetypal stories and dancing the rhythmic wave we rekindle the connections to our own patterns and heal and deepen our expression. Make moving medicine dance part of your monthly practice.
Natalie Poole is a certified 5Rhythms teacher, Dance-Movement Therapist, mother, wife and birth attendant. (Thanks to Lilli Waters for the image).
