Part one- Body Jazz

May 22-24- Rome

This is the foundation of the embodied movement practice and entrance into the body’s instinctive and artistic expression. Body Jazz is a movement lab that will invite each body part time to be danced, to unfold, to be listened to with focus and attention. Each of the 5 Rhythms has a gateway through, feet, hips, hands, head and breath.

This is suitable for beginners and experienced dancers.



Part two- Shadow Land

September 22-24 – Rome

In this workshop we will investigate the ‘blocks’ to our movement vocabulary and find ways to express through the “shadow’ of the 5 rhythms map, why we sometimes feel inert, stuck, unable to move, tense, our thinking mind is on overdrive, we ‘check out’ of our body, we become distracted, it is a challenge to stay moving and be present.

The only way out to freedom is through these places, when we are aware of our patterns in the shadow we can begin to transform ALL human experience into moving art.


Part Three- A Curious Heart

December 1-3 – Rome

In this workshop we will bridge the physical map of the 5 rhythms practice to the emotional landscape of the hearts’ dance.

The innocence of curiosity will keep us awake and open to all possibility of expression that lies beneath the surface. Time will be given to ground the body in its dance, to then allow the heart to join it fully.


Part Four- Be Amore

February 23-25 2018 Rome

This is a heartbeat workshop, the 5 rhythms investigation into our heart’s dance, all the previous workshops are a grounding and preparation with depth and fine tuning, each part a transition into the next wave that ends with our emotional world a full and rich choreography.

We will follow the dance of each emotion into the next, Fear, Frustration, Sadness, Gratitude and Compassion. We open ourselves to a more embodied heart, a more peaceful and wiser heart.

To attend this workshop you must have completed the previous three parts or have a minimum of 20 hours waves level with an accredited 5 Rhythms teacher.

Colour of Chaos









Colour of Chaos

This is a 5 Rhythms workshop that focuses on the third rhythm of the map ‘Chaos’, how to ‘let go’, saying it is one thing, but surrendering to the mystery and falling away into the depths of our dance to ‘shatter’ is a challenge, the teachings of chaos will open us up, creating empty space, releasing us, grounding this energy to deepen our trust. Chaos is the artist in us, our intuative intelligence heightened.

Napoli – Italy – March 31- April 2

Mary Stripped of Duty

She paints

Ripe light leaps through her fingertips

Arching angels of deep tissue

Bound by desire

Claim their hue

She empties herself on to the canvas

She is the masterpiece – J.Matheison

This 5 Rhythms dance workshop is inspired by Emma’s passion for the arts, their healing and transformative potential and her belief that there is an artist within everyone, be it a poet, a writer, a singer, painter, actor, or the poetry of your every day existence. This will be a 5 Rhythms movement investigation of the intuitive, spontaneous expression of creativity and imagination. The teachings will emerge through the gateway of the dance Chaos, that teaches us how to let go, how to move in the unknown, it is the wild mind embodied. “

Your soul will tell you how it wants to be expressed, you simply need to shut up and listen to it” Gabrielle Roth

Live Wire 2- Ritual Theatre and 5 Rhythms in Dubai

Live wire“Delivering one’s self back to the artistic nature of the body. Sculpting spirit into shape, writing soul into story, dancing mind into the wind and tracing the heart home.” Lorca Live Wire 2 is a theatre lab, a dynamic, raw,energetic experimental base where anything is possible.
In the laboratory we illuminate language,uncover gesture and free the mind through our theatrical investigation. We unlock the stories our bodies are longing to tell, articulating the threads of your life.
Live Wire is a ‘plug in’ to creative action, an opportunity to reawakening and sharpen those places in ourselves that need realigning or perhaps rewiring back to what’s most original and true. Getting in touch with the artistic nature of our practice has the potential to takeour vulnerability,vision, awareness and dance to new depths.
