Imagine there was a DJ who could reliably get a group of people to dance wildly for several hours on a Sunday morning with no drugs or alcohol. Each 5 Rhythms class has instructors who play music, while giving loose guidance and providing space for the dancers to move however they want. It has musical intensities which gradually build and settle down in a manner that the body recognizes, and can easily incorporate. The following descriptions are my own personal experience of how the journey feels and why each step felt like it was very applicable to my own work: djing for an audience. This section is much like the opening of your day as things are starting to get going including waking up. Slow, soft rhythms that gently move invite a dancer to being and move their bodies in a gentle way. We feel good upon first rising with clarity, and space for the day to come. Takeaways for DJs: Physically, dancers need to warm up their muscles and begin the process of movement. This is ideally done with lower BPMs that allow for greater space between the beats, and therefore slower movements. It can also be done energetically, with tracks that have less energy.

Gabrielle Roth's 5Rhythms with Richard Jerram -in Maryland, DC, & New Jersey
It can be a rich and rewarding experience to dance a 5Rhythms wave without any music, just the sound of you breath and your feet! At most classes though you will find teachers using music to inspire the dance. Teachers also invariably spend huge amounts of time finding and listening to music, much money buying the music and then testing it out on the dance floor. Gabrielle Roth has created music especially for the 5Rhythms.
The Arc Of 5 Rhythms
Pretty well any piece of music will fit into the 5Rhythms somewhere, but of course some pieces fit a lot better than others. You want that for Staccato. You can see Playlists that I dance to at home under Home Waves. Much music has been created especially for the practice, particularly by Gabrielle Roth who worked with a shifting group of musicians, The Mirrors, for a couple of decades.

He's in his second year of residency and we're talking about me leaving everything to get engaged and move up with him. I know my husband appreciates me looking into it because he knows I am doing it to gain an understanding into the culture he was raised in. Our relationship is not perfect, not easy, but absolutely amazing. Weirdly, one of the best sexes I ever had was with a lesbian who felt remorse and as though she had betrayed her fellow lesbians.
