From Becky Schisler ’14:
Join us for a transformative dance experience!
The 5Rhythms® is a dynamic movement-based practice developed by Gabrielle Roth. Dance, spontaneous and original within every body, is the medium and the medicine in the 5Rhythms® practice. There are no right or wrong moves, no choreography or steps. Curiosity, willingness to move, water bottle, bare feet or light dance shoes are all that is required. The rest is up to the dance. The 5Rhythms® practice is designed for everybody, regardless of age, shape or experience. Dress to sweat!
Daniela Peltekova is a certified 5Rhythms® teacher based in New York City. With warmth, poetic artistry and compassion, Daniela facilitates powerful space for movement and transformation. She comes originally from Bulgaria where the land holds ancient traditions of deep wisdom and spirituality.

Thanks to the fabulously badass Jillian Roberts ’15 for this one:
Only recently did Kenichi, or Ken, take the leap forward coming to the US in order to share his craft and learn more on this path, and in just a short amount of time has gotten him opportunities to be a featured dancer in various live stages as well as assisting positions for choreographers such as Gigi Torres and Neil Schwartz, and most recently was a guest judge for PUSO’s SAYAW 2014 at Stony Brook University. Some may also recall that he was at the mL tour D.C. Season 2 and 3 winning awards both times. Ken’s style is unique to be sure and the best word to describe such would be “subtle” yet filled with details, close to what a lot refer to now as Urban. We would like to leave you with a sentence that Ken will be sure to get you saying, “Everyone has the freedom to live, and I live for the freedom to dance”.
Date: Saturday, March 29th
Time: Beginner class at 1pm; Intermediate class (Kenichi) at 2:15pm

The mission of the workshop is to increase empathy and understanding by humanizing and embodying class divisions.
From Janika Oza ’15:
Have you ever wondered about the relationship between Wesleyan and the Middletown community? Are you involved in Middletown through community service or work? Are you concerned about the ways in which Wesleyan does (or doesn’t) facilitate interaction with the community?
Come to an open workshop and discussion, hosted by the WesDEFs, to examine our relationship with the Middletown community and to explore positive ways to engage with our neighbours and break down the barriers between us.
