The Workshop


Saturday Night 5Rhythms Community Dance         7-10pm ~ Drop-in $30

Join our open community dance Saturday night.  Saturday night is a part of the workshop, for those who signed up for both Saturday and Sunday.

Sunday Mini-Workshop, 11-5pm

If you cannot make Saturday, join for Sunday only ~ Cost $155 (sliding scale available $125-$155 for those in need)

We do not move alone. On the soul’s journey, lasting change happens with the support of others. We learn to love ourselves through the mirror of another. To fully live, we must find the ability to open, to receive, to be held by the love of others. Without support our souls slow down to wait. Soul evolution happens together.

When we dance we are simply being ourselves in the rarest, raw form — a vulnerable place for our egos — a place of freedom for our souls. Through the map of the 5Rhythms we will practice receiving (flow) as well as giving (staccato).  The dance of the two creating a portal into ecstatic peace.

There are numerous hotels and B&B's in the DC area, but we also offer dancers the opportunity to stay with members of the DC Tribe. For home stays, each guest pays $15 per night.  This fee goes to Ann, which in turn comes off your host's tuition for this workshop.  The energy exchange is taken care of, so no need to bring a gift or take them out for dinner!

If you would like housing please request in the EventBrite Registration Form.
