The circle comes around again, light to dark, end to beginning, and through it all we’ve shared so many dance floors, in classes and workshops, from the heart, following the wisdom of our moving centers into the belly of love and the arms of compassion.

Thank you for a year of long existing classes, new and wonderous workshops, collective generosity, and ever-expanding artistic action in the many dances we call life.

Below and on the Workshops page you’ll find listed upcoming class changes, wokshop listings, and information about Gabrielle Roth’s newest offering, 5Rhythms Reach Out™.

The close of 2010 and the opening of 2011 hold changes, opportunities, expansions and adventures for us all; I look forward to experiencing all or some of these possibilities with you as we continue to engage and explore with each other, led by the creative and healing force that is Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms®.

Happy Holidays, with love, with peace,

~ Tammy

Thursday Morning Waves

Since May, 2002, this class has continued in the light of day in that beautiful sun-filled studio some of us know so well, the studio where many of you had your first 5Rhythms class, where some of you shot your teacher training videos, and where I have learned so much about the art and heart of teaching the 5Rhythms.  It is with deep melancholy that I announce that the studio is closing at the end of this year. Our last two classes in the space will be on Thursday, Dec. 16 and Thursday, Dec. 23.  Pleae join us at these classes to give thanks and say farewell to the space that has held us with so much love.  With the clarity of heart that to continue our Thursday morning Waves work we need a warm, intimate. light-filled environment, I am thrilled to announce that class will relocate on Dec. 30 at 11AM to the Actors Movement Studio, 302 W. 37th St., 6th Flr.

Waves: From Start to Starting Over
Waves is the foundational map of Gabrielle Roth’s 5Rhythms® movement meditation practice.  It’s the map that first sets us free to explore our life-long dances of moving and being moved. We come to the Wave to be held, heartened, informed, lightened and inspired by and through our personal and collective creativity. We keep coming back to the Wave to realign body, heart and mind, to remember to move body and soul, and to reconnect body to spirit, flesh to breath, 5Rhythms at a time.  Come start or start over; a weekend respite on the dance floor, to begin, ignite, and re-kindle our love affair with the Wave.

Location:     Merce Cunningham Studio, 55 Bethune St. (btwn. Washington & West Sts.), New York, NY
Schedule:    Friday, Sept. 17, 8PM-11PM; Saturday, Sept. 18, 2PM-7 PM, Sunday, Sept. 19, 2PM-6PM

Heartbeat: A Journey to the Heartland

Gabrielle Roth’s Heartbeat map teaches us to move more freely with our emotions. Instead of denying them, resisting them, or persisting with them we learn to move with them and through them into a fuller expression of them. The 5Rhythms practice gives us a language to speak with our bodies; the Heartbeat practice leads us to move with the shape, breath and locomotion of our emotions. We all have dances that hold us back, tighten us up, tie us down, and keep us from moving with joy. In Heartbeat we practice releasing those dances, moving forward, loosening up, shaking free, lightening up. Let’s join together on the dance floor and find our way home to the heart one step at a time.

Location:     Summit Presbyterian Church, 6757 Greene St., Philadelphia, PA
Schedule:    Friday, Oct. 1, 7PM-10PM; Saturday, Oct. 2, Noon-6PM, Sunday, Oct. 3, 2.30PM-6.30PM

Effective immediately Friday’s Night Waves class will be held from 8PM – 10PM at the Joffrey Ballet, 434 6th Ave. (near 10th St.), 4th Floor.

Why?  So that we can practice being our wild, bigger than life selves without interfering with the classical practice of the ballet on the other side of the studio wall.  So that we can pursue the practice of living in a peaceable kingdom where there is room for every dancer to be in love, moving from the heart.

Looking forward to sharing the dance floor with you every Friday night.
