5Rhythms with Ann Kite

Why 5Rhythms?

5Rhythms is a creative, free-form movement practice that increases awareness.  It is a safe space where we can explore ourselves: bodies, emotions, minds, and hearts.  Just as in life, on the dance floor there are no rules: no movements to memorize, no right way to move, and no wrong way to express.  Dance is an ancient practice that we approach with reverence because it brings us into intimate contact with what is most sacred: our own self.  Find out more.

Your soul is a seeker, lover and artist; shape-shifting through archetypal energy, between your darkness and fields of light, your body and spirit, your heaven and hell, until you land in the moment of sweet surrender; when you, as a dancer, disappear into the dance.
— Gabrielle Roth
