Winter 5Rhythms Day Retreat

Dallas - 18 Jan 2020 to 18 Jan 2020
Mati Vargas-Gibson

 "Look at heaven and earth. Do they think about creating the weather, the seasons, the cycles of growing? They only go on revolving according to their nature, and the rest is generated without any thought or work on their part"

365 Tao


Take a whole day to dive deep into Wave after Wave this Winter. I am so excited to offer this Day long retreat in nature right here in the City!

The lodge at Springhill Retreat Center in Richardson will provide us with a spacious yet intimate container for our dances. A fireplace for creating a focus to our inner fire. An outdoor labyrinth (weather permitting) for moving in nature into the center of ourselves and out back into the dance. A kitchen to share a meal. And an outdoor fire for a closing ceremonial ritual.

5Rhythms is a simple yet potent movement practice for our times. It is a practice because we enter each dance as entering a mystery for the first time. We practice trusting our feet, listening to and expressing our heart, letting go and surrendering to the beat, shapeshifting into the lightness of being and emptying into the essence of being.

We do this when we dance every Wave. And when we can do Wave after Wave in the same day, we receive the blessings of profound dance medicine.

I hope you join us!

About Lorca:

Lorca is a certified 5Rhythms facilitator dedicated to the creation of physical theatre that is both interactive and transformative. 


She was born and raised in Texas where she grew up in her father’s experimental theatre company Hip Pocket Theatre. As an artistic associate she has been involved in producing original works for 47 years. A graduate of The University of North Carolina School of the Arts theatre conservatory. Educated in both experimental and traditional theatre. She has blazed through productions in New York City from Off Broadway to fringe, as well as television and film.


Lorca followed her instincts to the unique directing vibration known as Gabrielle Roth and a 19 year creative collaboration bloomed. She studied and trained with Gabrielle from the mid-90’s and was a co-founder and a co-director of 5RT, the experimental theatre wing of the 5Rhythms world, a place she stepped into with her expansive Texan feet, collaborating on numerous original productions and international workshops. In response to Gabrielle Roth’s investigation into what it means to be an authentic human being Lorca created Live Wire 5Rhythms Theatre which is dedicated to the creation of physical theater that is both interactive and transformative. Live Wire labs, Breath in Motion, Roots, Electric Landscapes, Silhouette, Wing Span, Soul Threading, Live Wire and On The Verge are rooted in a visionary and rigorous technique for people to become true “athletes of the heart" exploring and investigating the depths of the human spirit. 


She is committed to scattering the seeds of this transformative process.
