Join us:

Every Friday (including 12/21/12) for Night Waves NYC, 7.30-9.30pm, Joffrey Ballet, 434 6th Ave., 5th Flr., $20, $15 (students).   A deep and unpredictable dive into the 5Rhythms® movement meditation practice. This class is an opportunity to walk in, dance out and wake up to spirit Wave after Wave.

Sunday, Dec. 9 for Introduction to the 5Rhythms®: Chaos, 5.30-7.30pm, Peridance Capezio Center, 126 E. 13th St., $20.  In this mini-workshop we will give up control as we move into how we dance with the unpredictable and the unexpected. Allowing the full power of being a creative being to explode on the dance floor, we will take the chance to lose our heads to a creative force bigger than conscious thought.

Saturday, Dec. 15 – Sunday, Dec. 16 for Heartbeat, Gelsey Kirkland Academy, 355 Broadway.  EARLY-BIRD PRICING ENDS ON DEC. 7.

Note: This workshop fulfills the prerequisite Heartbeat hours necessary to attend Cycles with Jonathan Horan in NYC, Jan. 11-15, 2013.

“You have the power to become aware of the emotions that are coursing through your life – to know the contours, the patterns, the dynamics of your feelings, what they focus on and how they move.” –Gabrielle Roth, Maps to Ecstasy

We know that instead of partnering with our emotions, we often dance away from, around, against, and beside our fear, our anger, our sadness, even our joy. What if instead of denying our emotions, resisting them, or persisting with them we could learn to move with and through them

to become more fully embodied, creative, loving expressions of our souls? In Heartbeat we practice releasing our hold on our emotions and the hold they have on us, we practice being in the heart of our dance, and dancing into the heart of our being. Join us as we move with the shape, breath and locomotion of our emotions, transform them into art, and are transformed by the art of all of our hearts.

“Love is not a mood but a dynamic way of being.” – Gabrielle Roth, Maps to Ecstasy

Night Waves class returns to its 2 hour format this week (7.30-9.30pm).

Thank you thank you thank you everyone who joined us last Friday for our annual Gratitude event.  In this time of great needs and many pleas for donations for so many needy causes thank you to everyone who came out to dance our thanks and to benefit our adopted elders in Bogota, Colombia.  $500+ (with donations still coming in)!  Thank you for tenderly tendering your thanks, dropping in to thank the earth, extending out to thank each other, dropping it all down to thank all beings, to smell the sweetness of the roses in the air and see the beauty of the unknown in a crystal ball.  Thank you.

Join us every Friday, Joffrey Ballet, 434 6th Ave., 5th Flr., 7.30-9.30pm, $20, $15 (students)

Whether we see right on the surface how much we have to give thanks for this year, or we have to dig down deep below the surface to find the momentum to move with gratitude – please join us this Friday for Gratitude 2012 – to dance with ritual thanks for that which has been, that which is, and that which will be.

This special 3 hour event will benefit (as it has for so many years) our adopted 5Rhythms® dancing elders in Bogota, Colombia,

just one of the many world-wide communities that are sparked into motion by the 5Rhythms Reach Out (

The cost of this event is $25, $20 (students) – price includes a $5 donation for the elders to continue to support providing them with on-going 5Rhythms® classes. (Class card holders may use their cards and add $5 for the donation.)

7.30-10.30pm, Joffrey, 434 6th Ave., 5th Flr.

Thank you all for being part of this global tribe, feet first, heart forward, mind opened, soulfully joining in spirit around the globe.

With gratitude, unending and immeasureable, for Gabrielle Roth (1941-2012) and her loving insight and incomparable vision for us all.

“Your soul is a seeker, lover, and artist, shapeshifting through archetypal fields of energy, between your darkness and light, your body and spirit, your heaven and hell, until you land in the sweet moment of surrender when you, as dancer, disappear in the dance.” – G.R., Sweat Your Prayers

i love you,
