With love we invite you to a special collaborative Sunday morning dance event with Radiance Dance 5Rhythms (Michelle Mahrer) and Heart Sound (Vanessa Forbes and Steve Mazabow)
at the beautiful Glebe Town Hall - Sunday July 22
Our dance journey will be an invitation to dance with whatever is moving through you, in the first wave to empty out and be with what is arising so it can be released and integrated. Both recorded music and evocative live music soundscape of hang, flutes, percussion and voice will inspire our dance journey into the sacred space of the self. After emptying out in the first wave, In the second wave we open into the collective field of oneness and love and receive inspiration from the larger field holding us all, the place of infinite light, and radiance which connects us all. After the dance Heart Sound will lead a beautiful sound journey with didgeridoo, flutes, and percussion completing our experience.
We are planning to do some filming during this event. After 9 years running Radiance Dance in Sydney, its time for us to showcase and celebrate our beautiful dancing community with the creation of a beautiful art film that we can share with the world.
Our aim is to capture the beauty, joy, raw authenticity, freedom and healing power of 5rhythms dance, as well as the uniqueness of the special and exciting collaboration HeartSound and Radiance Dance 5Rhythms have been developing over the past few years.
We want to capture the field of love and healing, the sacred space, the space of community, belonging and connection that we create together on the dance floor.
We would love your support to be part of this film. and are offering a special price of $15 for our dance and sound journey to cover some of our costs.
We welcome you to join us even if you dont want to be in the film we will have a part of the room which wont be filmed or you can simply be in the back.

5Rhythms Dance is a dynamic movement meditation practice that ignites creativity, connection, and community. Rather than having steps to follow, each rhythm evokes a different energy in which you find your own expression and movement. As we drop into our body, listen, express and move with the body's impulses, we come home to our essence. The practise is very simple and accessible to people of all ages and abilities, and suitable for anyone who wants to rediscover the joy and freedom of dance that is within us all.
