It has been a liberating week. On Saturday, I heard the collective exhale from around the world as crowds gathered in mutual joy to dance in the streets.
In 1979, I arrived in the US full of hope for freedom, a dream, a vision, and a life where it was all possible. Until last Saturday, I wasn't sure this remained true.
I know we are still in a country with much close-mindedness and prejudice, but I feel hopeful for my dreams once again. I strived to get to where I am today, and I will keep moving forward in compassion and in support of justice.
Just as we honored the ancestors in last week's class, at this Wednesday's gathering, we’ll come together to celebrate the warriors who have passed and those still standing. We will remember those who stood up for something they believed and acknowledge everyone still on the front lines.
And like those who have gone before, we have another opportunity to envision a better world.
Let's come together to dance in celebration.

ABOUT SYLVIE MINOT'S 5RHYTHMS CLASS
5Rhythms is a simple movement practice designed to release the dancer that lives in every body regardless of shape, size, age, or experience. While the 5Rhythms dance itself is simple, it has the power to catalyze deep healing and creative expression.
The primary teaching of this work is: If you put your psyche in motion, it will heal itself.
The five rhythms are Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical, and Stillness. They come together to create a wave. There are no dance steps to follow. Each rhythm has a different energy and tempo in which you tap into the wisdom of your body, bring awareness to the patterns in yourself and your life, and find your individual expression.
In Sylvie Minot’s weekly 5Rhythms class on Zoom, you will be led on a journey of self-discovery as we come together in community. The class is made up of two waves. The first wave is your time to arrive, let go of your day and settle into your body. During the second wave, we dance more deeply and explore a specific theme.
Any level of fitness, agility and ages are invited to participate. All are welcome and no prior dance training or ability is required.
