What is 5Rhythms?

The 5Rhythms is a Movement Practice routed in the body’s instinctive expression, that releases us from our ‘overthinking’ mind. It helps to reconnect us back to our authenticity in a poetic and dynamic art form. 

Each of the Rhythms offers a different quality of energy that opens up a dance that, is fluid, fiery, edgy, wild, jazzy and zen. In name the 5Rhythms are: Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness. 

When we move with them in this sequence, it creates a wave of embodied energy. Each one a teaching that opens to the other. A Movement Art and Meditation.


No steps to learn, improvised, spontaneous dances are unveiled. The self-consciousness is overcome by giving our fascination over to our body’s movement language. 

Every dance is unique, we dive into the unknown mystery that reveals us to ourselves in our diversity, there is nothing that can’t be danced, a safe place to study what it is to "be" a human being.

"Emma, That was just superb and felt like experiencing a deeper level of 5R. Felt so connected with you and sharing such delicate magic - it really felt like being in the same room, the energy was just phenomenal. Love love loved it."

"A joy to participate in this improvisation led by Emma Leech. Starting to create from silence, from the impact of the body in space in relation to others with the world. A tool, a research I can't live without as an actress and as a human being. Thank you Emma for the deep teachings."
