What is 5Rhythms Dance?

5Rhythms is an expressive movement practice founded by Gabrielle Roth in the late 1960s that offers a unique approach to self-discovery and personal growth. It encompasses a series of five rhythms—Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness—that guides participants through a dynamic exploration of emotions, energy, and creativity. 

5Rhythms is more than just dance; it’s a meditation in motion, fostering mindfulness, body awareness, and emotional release. 5Rhythms is considered an embodiment practice as the more often participants dance it, the easier and faster they are able to enhance their emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. Through its open structure where no particular steps or moves are required, 5Rhythms is a gateway for personal liberation, empowerment and authentic self-expression.

Samar Linn, co-creator and guide of Project CLOSER, is a certified 5Rhythms teacher and holds weekly dance classes in Berlin.
