Deep Waves is a special Saturday high-spirited dancing dive into the medicine of the 5Rhythms. We gather for an evening of music, movement, embodied ceremony, and community connection.
Danced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms is a dynamic freestyle movement practice. Dancing Wave upon Wave of the 5Rhythms, we practice the art of being fully alive in the present moment, to all that moves through us. Come dive into your own deep dance, with a circle of other dancing seekers of the sacred. Come reSource, come release, come ride the Wave!
All movement experience is welcome. Pre-registration is required

*Tiered pricing is available so that those of us with more can share, and those of us who could use some support can receive it. When you register at the Supporter rate, a portion of your registration fee is applied toward another dancer’s reduced-rate spot. If a lower price will make the classes accessible for you, please register at the ‘Supported’ rate. If you know you want to dance regularly, and these prices are a barrier for you, please email me at email@example.com for a possible partial scholarship.
REFUND POLICY: There are no refunds. If you must cancel your attendance due to testing positive for Covid, you will be offered a class credit which can be applied towards a future class with Layah. If you are unable to attend for other reasons, first please let us know so we may release your spot to another dancer. In the event that we are at capacity and we are able to fill your spot, you will be offered two options: you may donate your tuition to the scholarship fund, or you may receive a class credit which can be applied towards a future class with Layah. No credits will be issued for no-shows, or if we have not reached capacity.
