And there is also a rich resource available when we have the time and space explore what it is that we dance to escape from: that sense of inertia, the feelings of tension in muscles and gut, the state of confusion in our mind, that spacing out in front of the TV or with a G&T, the numbness when we can’t take any more.
In 5Rhythms we call these places the ‘Shadows’, and each Rhythm has a shadow, and by practicing dancing into and out of these shadows throughout a Wave, we find we can accept more of ourselves into the dance, and actually by dancing with inertia, tension, confusion, spaced-out and numbness, we deepen and enrich our dance in the light.
This is a Waves workshop and is open to both experienced dancers who want to deepen their dance and to newcomers who want to learn about the 5Rhythms movement meditation practice. All bodies welcome.
