5Rhythms® in Cumbria - evenings and workshops through the year

April Wave ~ with Angela Lord

The Space Between….

Maybe you like it best when you can dance alone?
Maybe your best dances come in partnership?
Maybe you love the energy of what Gabrielle called “tribal”?
And then there’s that dance when it feels as though you’re dancing - with? - in? something deeper and wider than any of those.

On April 19th I’ll be inviting you to explore connection in some of its many forms -
connection, and the space between…..

As with all journeys of exploration, we don’t know what we’ll find. That can be scary, or exciting … or, of course, neither … or both …
Perhaps even something altogether different?



The five rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness combine in a harmonic vibrant sequence of the danced Wave. Come and connect your head, heart and body, in joyous company. Newcomers are especially welcome. 

Jan22(If the evening has become fully registered, do sign up to the Waiting List. Sometimes a registrant will inform us in advance that they can't attend, and we are able to re-allocate the space.) 

"Energy moves in Waves. Waves move in patterns. Patterns move in rhythms. A human being is just that - energy, waves, patterns, rhythms. Nothing more. Nothing less. A dance." Gabrielle Roth

Angela Lord


I'm a certified teacher of 5 Rhythms®, having completed the training with Gabrielle Roth in 2011, after a lifetime spent mainly teaching in mainstream education, but also with periods of working in social care and creative coaching. I found the Rhythms in 1999 - love at first sight! I'd found a doorway into a different world, a space where I was not only allowed but positively encouraged to dance, and a dance form that was not just for the young, the fit, and the slender. It changed my life.

My loves are my son and his family, my friends; poetry, ancient places, my birthplace in Central America; the beauty of the natural world, silence, solitude, and the things of the spirit. But the dance is both my passion and my practice. In it, I find my body set free, and my heart, mind and soul opened...to a greater authenticity, a deeper connection, with myself, with others, with Other. I feel most fully myself, yet expanded beyond myself. When I dance the Rhythms, I begin, once again, to become more of who I am. And teaching this practice continues to lead me down new paths, creative, challenging, and deeply rewarding.
