"There is a dance that only you can do, that exists only in you, here and now, always changing, always true". Gabrielle Roth
In this weekly 5Rhythms class with accredited teacher Ben Deutsch, you are invited to:
- Pay attention to your body and to the physical sensations of movement.
- To use movement to clearly express what's happening inside of you.
- To release your ideas of what dance is and what movements are appropriate or inappropriate.
- To allow the possibility that you have always known how to dance.
- To land with full awareness in each moment.
There are no steps or routines to learn, but simple guidance and great music to inspire you.
Through the rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness, Ben will encourage you to explore the possibilities of movement, and to uncover the dance that only you can do.
No dance experience needed - all life experiences welcome.
What to bring
Please wear clothes that you'll feel comfortable moving (and quite possibly sweating) in.
Most people dance with bare feet, but you can wear soft-soled indoor shoes if you prefer.
Please bring a water bottle, and drink from and re-fill it as often as you need to.
