Waves in High Park with Elisa

Dear 5Rhythms Dancers,

Waves in High Park with Elisa is on-hold for the winter and early spring!  I hope to be able to resume these classes starting between May-July and going until December, like last year!

It was so interesting and welcome to continue to move throughout the seasons, even as the weather got colder.  It was one of my first experiences doing so and really put me much more in touch with the elements and nature than ever before.

We will be dancing in a large, fairly private and protected space in High Park.

Registration information is below:

A facilitated 5Rhythms wave, followed by a closing circle.

High Park – the exact spot in the park will be provided upon registration.

This moving meditation practice can ultimately help us become more aligned in our thoughts, feelings and actions and become more attuned to the present moment.

Further Class Details:

It has been really wonderful to dance with the seasons, to have our bare feet in the green grass, to observe the beautiful birds and dragonflies that have accompanied us during our dances, to experience the moon, and the beginning of the changing of the leaves.

For this class, please register in advance, by 10am on the day of the class or before.  If there are any cancellations due to rain or other weather conditions, I will notify everyone 2 hours in advance by email (by 10:30 am) and will notify you if we are still dancing outside but without music on that day, or if an online class format will be offered.

If you would like any further information or have any questions, please let me know. More information can also be found on the registration form which you can read before filling it out.

Much warmth and I look forward to seeing you there!



Created by Gabrielle Roth and practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms® is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion, it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages, cultures and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness, and awareness into action. Wherever the 5Rhythms are practiced, a community is born to dance, to sweat, to change, to support and to provide a safe space for each of us to shatter the ego’s hold and awaken the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-waling, rock star part of ourselves that years to be free.


Elisa is passionate about bringing 5Rhythms® to people who crave and want more movement and self-expression in their everyday lives. She has been dancing since the age of 5, dipping her toes into as many movement practices as she could find (ballet, contemporary, hula hoop, yoga, ecstatic dance) and now the 5Rhythms since 2002. She is the founder of Create-Move-Connect, performer and teacher with Truly Connecting Playback Theatre, researcher and community organizer.

All class hours with Elisa count towards 5Rhythms® Teacher Training prerequisites.
