Dancing the 5Rhythms: Presentation, classes and workshops
Dancing the 5Rhythms release energi and creativity, melt tentions and root your soul in the body.
The joyrney: Self-discovery, therapy and spirituality. To me the 5rhythms is always a journey of self-discovery, therapy and spirituality and because its bodywork all three journeys become one, as you dance through the 5 rhythms: flow, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness.
1997 – 2008: I have been dancing the 5rhythms since early 1997, and been teaching 5rhythms since November 2008. Gabrielle Roth (1941-2012) was my teacher and I have danced so many workshops with her and many other teachers.
2008 – 2013: The first 5 years of my own teaching the 5Rhythms, I simply said yes to everything I was asked - paid but also voluntary, and it gave me so many experiences with all kinds of groups, small groups (down to one) and big groups (up to 200 dancers) in classes of 1 1/2 to 3 hours, weekend workshops (Friday night, Saturday and Sunday) and summer-dance retreats of a week up to 10 days. I have mostly been teaching adults, but also mums with babies, and this summer parents/friends together with kids from 5 to 12 years.
Through the years I have taught different kind of workshops:
Workshops with a theme like
'The power of dancing'
‘Soft and wild dancing 5rhythms’,
‘5threads to intuitive wisdom through the 5Rhythms’
‘Rebel Dancer, power and passion’ & 'Rebel dancer into the unknown'
‘Presence through the 5Rhythms’
Working together with an art therapist, Sasja Iza Christensen, in 3 weekend workshops: Dancing 5Rhythms and bringing the 5Rhythms into personal art together.
Working together with 5R teacher, Bettina Leuckert and musicians, we did the workshop 'Alive' doing 5Rhythms to improvisatory music (4 workshops + classes)
Working together with artist, Birgitte Gyrd, dancing the 5Rhythms through a Gallery with paintings, which were done as expressions of the 5Rhythms (2 one-day-workshops)
Being a 5Rhythms teacher is a life-long dedication to be a student, learning and being in service. Besides Gabrielle Roth and her son Jonathan Horan and many other 5Rhythms teachers, the Norwegian Musician Jon Roar Bjorkvold, who did the film ‘The muse within’ about rhythms, also inspires me. I visited him in February 2013 for a long discussion about rhythms.
Besides teaching the 5Rhythms, I work as a journalist, making a magazine for a worker's Union.
'The concept of the workshop is very well organized - I feel safe as participant /.../ I love your way of teaching: simplicity and no redundant words. In this I surrender, listening to the language of my body.' Lene Andersen, 2016.
'Wonderful workshop /.../ Thank you for your support, when we go stuck, I feel you really see us. Thank you.' Ann-Marie Malmos, 2016
