Dance At Home

The benefits of practice accrue over time and they increase not only with depth of practice (classes/workshops) but also with connection to our daily lives.

You can dance alone, you can dance to music with fellow enthusiasts, and you can do without music and dance in silence. I myself have done all of these but, before encouraging you to dance at home, I need to say that after 19 years of practice I still go to dance with other teachers (Back in London, I did so twice a week). 

The presence of a teacher really helps me focus. And, as importantly, the teaching always opens new doors for me: it stretches me –the reason I dance in the first place. Knowing that a teacher has hundreds of hours of dance experience (and to a far deeper level than he or she is teaching) gives me the confidence to relax, learn and grow. 

BUT:-

If you are looking at this page you very unlikely to be at a class. You are probably at home. So:- Why not dance right now? Put on some music -anything you like- and just dance!

AND:-

You can make it a daily (or occasional) practice to dance at home. If you have an idea of what the Rhythms are about, why not dance a Wave at home? You may need to do some experimenting but, for letting go into the 5Rhythms, I recommend setting up a wave in advance (impossible in the 90s but so easy now with iTunes playlists etc) so that you don’t distract yourself with choosing the next track (fun though that is).
