Never in my 25 years of dancing have I experienced the power of 5Rhythms so deeply as I did this year.
Yes, dancing with Gabrielle was like time travel and super magical and changed my whole life.
But this year, more than ever, 5Rhythms proved itself as a practical life elixir for many. Even for people who don't really have anything to do with dancing.
From the beginning of this global crisis, 5Rhythms proved to be able to adapt to any situation. And whether I work online, in the park or on the beach, live, with a group or 1 on 1, each time dance proves that it knows how to bring the undercurrents of life to the surface and transform them into healing and carrying energy. A comfort for many. Even passers-by feel the power, get a smile on their face, look relieved or dance along without hearing the music. Countless moments of pure magic and connection with strangers. A garbage man who sees us dancing and without hearing the music starts moving with us and goes completely crazy......Tears of wonder, emotion
Connection in moments of isolation, comfort in moments of desperation, relief in times of suffocation.
I would like to express my deep gratitude to our practice and especially to the collaborations that were so important this year. Together we are stronger, we can do more.
How special was it that we helped each other to get online, that we gave each other info where to buy the best outdoor equipment, that we can dance in each other's classes without burdening mother earth too much? We can lift each other up to the next level.
And that is exactly what I want to do with my work. Emancipate people, make them believe in the power of themselves and the collective. To reconnect with the powers and wisdom of nature, so that on a deeper level there is a connection with the world around us.
The Earth Within.
In this workshop the ancient oral traditions and rituals from the Andes are combined with dance. During this 11 week journey we will connect with the elements on different levels. We create a Sacred Space where we can hear, feel and move the messages of the elements. A deeply transformative experience.
I give this workshop together with an Andean Shaman. To get you acquainted with what we do during these 11 weeks we organize a taster evening.
Be ready for a great journey.
