5Rhythms is a dynamic dance movement practice created and cultivated over 40 years by Gabrielle Roth (1941-2012) and now practiced all over the world.

With no steps to learn or particular choreography, Tom guides the class to move with awareness and tune into the body’s sensations. This practice is not aiming for any aesthetic or result and requires no special physical fitness or previous experience. Only an intention to step out into the moment and to give shape and movement to life flowing through us! Using the dance floor as a space to move into an investigation of the body's natural rhythms, discovering it's deep wisdom and giving expression to our uncensored self, natural and uninhibited in the fullness of being alive.
