Due to the uncertainty at this time, we continue with a socially distanced dance and all tickets booked only online in advance.

Move through 5Rhythms Waves guided by Mary. We dance the rhythms of flowing, staccato, chaos, lyrical and stillness. This powerful practice connects us to the bigger picture and gives us the space to transform ourselves, one dance at a time.

The invitation is to focus our attention to our bodies, noticing what arises and using this as a gateway for exploration.

Wear loose comfortable clothes and bare feet, or soft soled dance shoes. Bring water to drink. Please arrive on time and stay for the entire session. Arrive 'dance ready' so you do not need to change in the venue. Dance barefoot or in soft soled, non marking dance shoes. Bring your own bottle of water as there will be no cups available at the venue.

Maximum number is 35 to allow for social distancing. The large venue allows for plenty of space for all.


Social distancing of 2m to be respected. There is plenty of space for this.

Self care and mutual respect is our way. This will help us all to relax and enjoy the dance, naturally dancing with distance which will be encouraged by the teaching. This will be a socially distanced dance.
