If you’re just beginning to explore ecstatic dance, this classes will give you the basic tools. If you’re an experienced 5Rhythms® dancer, they will allow you the opportunity to dive deeper into your personal practice. Classes are open to every moving body, regardless of age, size, gender or physical ability.In each workshop, Melinda will create a safe container and guide the energy in the room. The rhythms themselves are gateways to literally thousands of different movement landscapes. Like the body, they are alive and designed to catalyze the dancer’s movement expression in the moment. -In this first workshop, we’ll explore the rhythms as they relate to your unique stories and life. What is your “home” rhythm? What are your boundaries of personal space, alone, in relationships, and in groups? Where are the wholes and holes in your story? -Please bring a journal and a snack.

“The 5Rhythms ® are states of Being, they are a map to everywhere you want to go, on all planes of consciousness – inner and outer, forward and back, physical, emotional and intellectual. They are markers on the way back to the real self, a vulnerable, wild passionate, instinctive self.” – Gabrielle Roth
