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, a growing roster of local teachers and more in training, Melbourne is a vibrant 5Rhythms dance community.
FLUX: Special Magic of FLUX
$56/$65 for the evening
Friday 15th December
This pop-up Flux event is to explore the magical place of trance on the 5Rhythms map. We dance to find ourselves and lose ourselves in the wave. When we dance together in the group there are moments of synchronicity, creativity and meaning-full and meaning-less moments. After an extended hiatus due to COVID-19, we are returning together again for this one-off opportunity to dance in the magic again. We will take this opportunity to workshop several of the facets of the 5Rhythms dance that support the group to dive into, and loiter in the altered or trance states. All new and experienced movers are welcome.
Stay for a cuppa, some choc, and a chance to connect afterwards.

5Rhythms dance offers us the potential to practice love for our whole self – body, mind and soul. When we learn to feel love for ourselves, through our body, we are more open to sharing that love with others. Understanding the ways we love, and what blocks us, is a practice in mindful awareness that can be accessed every time we meet our bodies in dance.
This is a one day immersion, using 5Rhythms dance to explore the ways in which we move in and out of Love. It is an opportunity to come to know love through your body, and share this experience with others. Its the kind of work that will continue to inform your dance practice for years to come.
