New York

For 20+ years, the streets of New York City have been Gabrielle & Jonathan's laboratory, daily community, and the inspiration that is the 5Rhythms body of work and vision.

Our NYC teachers service the dynamic, diverse and dedicated tribe you could expect to make their way onto our dancefloors here. It provides a refuge of rhythm for those who are hungry to maintain a real self within the creative pulse, urban edge, and tribal soul of Manhattan. There is no more exciting place on earth, as it perfectly mirrors the complexity and challenges we face when we look within. Our NYC offerings of daily classes, short and long form workshops are available to dance you through all levels of the 5Rhythms every year.

Upcoming Workshops


New York - 20 Apr 2018 to 22 Apr 2018
Tammy Burstein - The Moving Center New York

Break us down to our very essence and we'll find that what we have in common is elementary - made up of the same matter, walking the same earth, sparked by the fire of life's blood, cleansed by water, breathing the same air, preciously inhabiting the space around us and inside of us.   But how often do we take the time to break ourselves down to that essence, to be fully in our elements, discover when and how we are earth, where our fire lives in our bodies, how we can call on the medicine of water to release what holds us back from being a creative being, ride the air of transformation, and find the space to be whole and holy.   When we dance together through this alchemical Wave,  we surrender to the elements, find what we're made up of, fill in what's missing, and bring ourselves back to what's essential in our lives, and to all life  - led by  the simple, essential, elementary map of the 5Rhythms.


Feet First

New York - 20 May 2018 to 20 May 2018
Ray Diaz - The Moving Center New York

Flowing is more than just a metaphor - there is an actual current of energy running through our lives, always wanting to carry  us in a continuous fluid motion. But life is full of obstacles and we tend to oblige them, resisting the flow and getting stuck in our heads, out of our bodies and disconnecting from our deepest nature, the energy of fluid motion. What would it be like to navigate fluidly within your own life? To meet every obstacle with the ease and grace of fluid energy?

The 5Rhythms maps teach us how energy flows through our bodies and through our lives, and in this workshop we will explore the foundation of the Rhythms; Flowing. We will dance ourselves into our own expression of Flow, Feet First, one step at a time, so that we may know the grace and beauty of our deepest true nature.

“The groove is so mysterious. We're born with it and we lose it and the world seems to split apart before our eyes into stupid and cool. When we get it back, the world unifies around us, and both stupid and cool fall away. I am grateful to those who are keepers of the groove. The babies and the grandmas who hang on to it and help us remember when we forget that any kind of dancing is better than no dancing at all.”     - Lynda Barry.
