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.

Heartbeat Intensive

Melbourne - 17 Jan 2020 to 18 Jan 2020
Meredith Davies

In Waves classes, we dance the 5Rhythms time and time again, so that we deepen our capacity to be fluid and grounded with everything that life reveals to us.

Sometimes we find ourselves on the dance floor in a puddle of tears or experiencing moments of rage or even despair. This is a natural and normal experience. We can spiral into resistance, shame and apathy or we can use movement to access our true power.

This Heartbeat Intensive will provide you with the embodiment tools to respect and transform these emotional moments. This is a life changing practice.

Heartbeat® work enables us to claim the vital energy of old unacknowledged feelings and be surprised and refreshed by new ones. We learn to “lean in” and not resist or indulge our emotional world.In this workshop we will dance a lot and witness each other, moving with Fear, Anger, Sadness, Joy and Compassion. This fosters acceptance for the vital energy that emotion gifts us.

Archeology - 5 Day 5Rhythms Summer Workshop


In this workshop we will be endeavouring to uncover the bones of our dance and the bones of our bodies. What will be revealed when we uncover the truth?


Natalie Poole is a certified 5Rhythms teacher, Dance Movement Therapist, and Intimacy Co-ordinator. She has worked in schools and various settings including universities, detention centres, clinical settings and film sets. She teaches weekly classes in Melbourne and regular workshops in Australia and Europe. This is a 5Rhythms workshop, and will be drawing on processes from dance-movement therapy including Authentic Movement and Body Mind Centering in order to bring more awareness to our embodiment and dance practice.  This workshop will count as 5 days of waves pre-requisites towards the teacher training.
