FREE 5Rhythms Workshop San Francisco

Saturday, April 22, 2017 at 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM PDT

Presidio Performing Arts Center

San Francisco, CA 94129

During the Bay Area Dance Week and on Earth Day, Presidio Dance Theatre and The City Waves present FREE 5Rhythms Community Dance Workshop on Saturday, April 22.

Come dance with Alessandro Moruzzi and Vehllia Tranne in celebration of joy and freedom. Dancing the 5Rhythms is a practice—a dynamic way to both workout and to meditate in the same breath. They teach us that life is energy in motion, freeing us from any fixed notions about people, places, objects or ideas. We dance to an eclectic blend of world music, soul, classics, rock, electronica and other music until the dancer disappears and only the dance remains.

The 5Rhythms – Flowing Staccato Chaos Lyrical Stillness – are states of Being. They are a map to everywhere we want to go, on all planes of consciousness – inner and outer, forward and back, physical, emotional and intellectual. They are markers on the way back to a real self, a vulnerable, wild passionate, instinctive self.

Everybody's welcomed! No experience necessary. We dance barefoot or dance shoes only. Please come ready to sweat, bring your curiosity, a water bottle and your friends. Wheelchair accessible. Please plan to arrive on time.

Cost: Free
