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.

“A warrior is self-oriented, not in a selfish way, but in the sense of a total, continuous examination of the self." - Castaneda

Mirrors is an initiation into the world beyond self-importance -- into the art of seeing. To enter the world of Mirrors is to take off our blinders and begin to see through the delusions and difficulties that trap us in unhappiness and destructiveness. We start to step back and get some insight into the predictable patterns that sabotage the grace and dignity of our truest and most soulful self.

In the 5Rhythm® practice, we are constantly moving into the most spontaneous, energetic, expansive qualities of our being. In the Mirrors level of the practice, we are given the tools to identify the relentless loop of our own favorite head-trips and the inevitable situations they create. We tear off masks, sheds skins, reinventing ourselves effortlessly, learning to witness our own drama, its roots and rituals. We enter the crowd of characters that dominate our stage whether servant or star, doormat or dreamer, realist or rebel, mystic or manipulator—all divas, and begin to watch them sabotage our funky, fiery, free-spirit. Sometimes we have to stop the world and wonder: which part of me is using my hands, my feet, my eyes, my ears, and most importantly my mouth today?

We all know what it feels like to get stuck, to lose our groove, to get trapped in our heads and cut off from our hearts Seeking the answer within awakens the witness and learning to witness our own melodrama is our saving grace.

Stillness: Dancing With the Empty Space

New York - 7 Dec 2019 to 7 Dec 2019
Jane Selzer - The Moving Center New York

"For me, the empty space is the ultimate comfort zone, pure energy, pure being, pure connection. It is where you lose your sense of self-consciousness, where you are no longer standing outside yourself but are completely at one with who you are at that moment." - Gabrielle Roth

In this workshop we will explore the vast final rhythm of Stillness. We will practice seated meditation, walking meditation and dancing the Stillness Wave. We will investigate how the experiences of meditation, both sublime and mundane, can be danced.


Jane Selzer has been teaching body/mind classes for over 30 years.  She started out by teaching Modern/Jazz Dance in the mid 1980's, added Kripalu Yoga in 1994 and brought it all together by becoming a 5Rhythms teacher in 1997.

Jane has completed Lynn Simonson's Jazz Dance Teacher Training, the Kripalu Yoga Teacher Certification, the 5Rhythms Teacher Certification, the AFAA Group Exercise Certification and the Melt Method and Melt Neurostrength Teacher Trainings.  She currently lives and teaches in Brooklyn, NY.
