Desert Waves 5Rhythms Classes
Regularly scheduled 5Rhythms classes in Arizona…
Melanie’s class…was probably the most exquisite 5Rhythms Waves class I’ve been to in 20 years of dancing. She brought depth, clarity, warmth, poetry and wit into that room. And there was a great playlist.
5Rhythms alters the way I move and react to the world on and off the dance floor! And Melanie C. is an intuitive wellspring of knowledge and an inspiring force behind my newly found love of this dance practice!
Melanie is a natural teacher and a natural leader. Always inclusive, encouraging, and engaging, she has a way of gently directing the students’ experiences into a deeper realm while keeping the overall atmosphere upbeat and joyful.
She creates a safe and welcoming space within which there is room for everyone. I highly recommend Melanie as a 5Rhythms instructor.
The fastest, cleanest, most joyful way to break out of your own box is by dancing. I’m not talking about doing the stand-and-sway. I’m talking about dancing so deep, so hard, so full of the beat that you are nothing but the dance and the beat and the sweat and the heat.
I am a woman in my 70s who loves moving to music…Moving around our round wooden dance space to Melanie’s inspiring and eclectic music choices is a pleasurable experience in itself….Engaging in 5Rhythms waves encourages mobility and stamina [and] resonates off the dance floor as well, opening one’s relationship to music and to mundane life experiences, like kitchen chaos after a dinner party.
