Description

"Offering" is an extended 3-hour Friday night 5Rhythms dance class led by certified 5Rhythms teacher Ann Kite.


"Offer your body to the realm of mystery and receive the gift of instinct.

Offer your heart to the realm of darkness and receive the gift of intimacy.

Offer your mind to the realm of chaos and receive the gift of intention.

Offer your soul to the realm o unity and receive the gift of integrity.

Offer your spirit to the realm of destiny and receive the gift of inspiration."

-- Gabrielle Roth, Connections


This class is for adults only.

What is 5Rhythms?

Practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms® is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages, cultures and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness, and awareness into action. Wherever the 5Rhythms are practiced, a community is born to dance, to sweat, to change, to support, and to provide a safe space for each of us to shatter the ego’s hold and awaken the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-walking, rock star part of ourselves that yearns to be free.

What should I wear?

No special clothing is required, but we recommend that you wear comfortable clothes that allow for full range of motion. 5Rhythms is usually practiced barefoot, although you are welcome to wear dance shoes or soft-sole shoes if you prefer.

I’ve never taken a 5Rhythms class before. What can I expect?

There are no steps to learn and no right or wrong way to dance 5Rhythms. Instead, 5Rhythms is a practice of listening to the body and allowing the body to express itself through movement. It is both an individual and collective experience — dancing with partners or groups is always allowed, sometimes encouraged, but never required. Every body expresses itself in a unique way in each and every class. One of the key goals of the practice is to discover your body’s way of moving here and now. A unique playlist is created by the teacher for each class. The music generally starts slow, builds to a climax midway though the class, and then slows down again in a pattern known in 5Rhythms as a “wave.”

If you have additional questions, please contact Ann Kite.
