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.

DEJA VU or SOMETHING NEW?: Experiments in Shadow & Light, Part 1

New York - 1 Mar 2020 to 1 Mar 2020
Tammy Burstein - The Moving Center New York

 “Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time... I think I’ve forgotten this before.” – Steven Wright

The 5Rhythms is a moving map that can carry us through life’s shadows and into the lightness of being.  Every rhythm has its embodied shadow, and every shadow has a dance that opens the blinds to the light. 

Our shadow dances often feel like deja vu moments – comfortable or uncomfortable in their familiarity, their endless repetition.  What if we could dance our way through deja vu and into a new view, shine a light and lighten up? In the first of these two one-day workshops we’ll explore the shadow side of the rhythms, identify the shadows that we know best, uncover ones that we haven’t named before, and body build on our fact-finding, fleshing out our relationship with the light side of rhythms.  In the second part we’ll revisit the shadows as an opening to the light, explore unexpected and surprising ways to embody the pure rhythms, follow the map to new relationships with both the shadows and the light, and dance into new views.

5Rhythms Movement and Art Laboratory

Hudson Valley - 17 Apr 2020 to 19 Apr 2020
Peter Fodera - Stephanie Diamond

 How can our dance inspire art? How can art inspire our dance? 


Using the 5Rhythms map, we will open our creative channel and step into the practice inviting artistry and guidance. We will explore artmaking through movement and embodiment. We will experiment with materials on the dance floor as well as in an art studio. We will use this process to inform us in creating both on the dancefloor and in the art studio. We will end the weekend in ritual. The art studio will be open for 24 hrs, from the beginning of the workshop until its end.
