Elisa Hollenberg is currently participating in the training path to become a certified 5Rhythms® teacher.
I am passionate about bringing 5Rhythms® to people who crave and want more movement and self-expression in their everyday lives. I have been dancing since the age of 5, dipping my toes into as many movement practices as I could find (ballet, contemporary, South African gumboot dancing, hula hoop, yoga, ecstatic dance) and now the 5Rhythms, since 2002. I am a regular dancer and facilitator at The Move Dance Collective, Toronto’s longest-running all-ages conscious dance gathering. In recent years, I founded and co-directed Create-Move-Connect, a community-based dance project to transform improvisation into choreography and performance. We staged 4 successful bi-annual shows with original pieces created by dancers from the contact improv, ecstatic and 5Rhythms communities. I offer recreation and expressive arts facilitation for individuals and groups and perform and teach with Truly Connecting Playback Theatre. I live and work in a big city context where I try to connect hearts to hearts and bring embodied presence and community connection wherever possible
Elisa will be teaching her first series of waves 5Rhythms® classes starting in February 2018 – Dynamic Waves. All class hours with Elisa count towards 5Rhythms Teacher Training prerequisites.
