21 Years & A Final Class

I shall teach on September 26th.

This will be the 21st anniversary of my teaching practice. I expect it to be my final class for quite a while:

4th Sundays: Sunday September 26th 2021

3 pm EDT  (That’s Noon in California, 8pm in UK).
Length of class 1.5 hours approx. Doors open 2.55.

5Rhythms this fall.

It turns out I cannot teach on August 22nd. This is for family reasons.

Instead, I have decided to offer 5Rhythms on August 29th and September 12th.

From late September to mid November I now expect to be out of the country -with internet access being too uncertain to allow me to commit to any schedule.

I hope to be able to resume teaching from November 14th up to the New Year, hopefully in person at Homewood, (as long as the elevator work there has at last been completed).

20 Years of Teaching: A Heads-Up

Next class is on September 13th. The class after that I shall be celebrating 20 years of 5Rhythms teaching.

September 7th 2000: Arrived back in UK from Gabrielle Roth’s month-long workshop.
My teacher Sue Rickards tells me that Gabrielle has suggested that I should take over the London Seniors class at the Mary Ward Center.
September 18th: Interview at Mary Ward Center.
Tuesday September 19th: Teach first class of term & continue for next seven years.

2nd & 4th Sundays Confirmed

I’m happy to confirm that I’ll be teaching 2nd & 4th Sundays for the rest of the year. This month looked a bit difficult for a while, but we have now managed to work things out.

Yes, classes are still Online and I know people have different feelings about that. Speaking personally, I have relished being able to dance with my first teacher Sue Rickards twice a week for the past four months (instead of once every two years since I left the UK).

Details & Registration on my ONLINE CLASSES page.

3 pm EDT 2nd & 4th Sundays (That’s Noon in California, 8pm in UK).
Length of class 1.5 hours approx. Doors open around 2.50.

Note that 2nd Sunday classes have a different Zoom ID to 4th Sunday classes.

Using Video: Bear in mind that if I cannot see you (because your screen is off or you are off-screen), I cannot respond to you. Also, of course, just as on a ‘real’ dance floor, our energy -whether it be absorption, wildness, lethargy, distraction, passion- is an offering to others and to our communal self. So unless your living room is in real chaos (children creating mayhem etc), do be visible. Join with video as well as audio and be present with your fellow dancers. Place the camera where a good portion of your space is visible (including some floor if possible). However I recognize that having video off might possibly improve the audio.
