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.

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. 

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?

Numbers limited to 20. Book to ensure your place.
