"If you put the psyche in motion, it will heal itself." Gabrielle Roth

I Welcome to the web site of Unfolding Movement, the non-profit organisation that we, Nancy en Edo, set up to communicate our love of the 5Rhythms®. We can't imagine life without this practice, and we gladly bring you into movement, so that you can experience yourself what it can offer to your life. Take a (regular) look at this web site, and don't hesitate to let your body taste one of our classes, and to let us know your experience or discoveries.

The 5Rhythms® are an international movement, started by Gabrielle Roth, an American woman with a passion for dance and how it can be used to free ourselves. We have some twenty colleagues in Belgium, and hundreds world-wide. Therefore we chose to not only publish our own activities on this web site, but also a selection of activities of our (inter)national colleagues, as an example of what is available. You'll also find references to the Belgian and international agendas.

Permission to explore

End of March, we danced in our colleague Silvija Tomcik’s weekend workshop, which was called “Permission”. When I (Edo) reflect on it, “Permission” is actually a word which is at the core of my 5Rhythms® practice. Each time I dance, I give myself the permission to be (in my body), to feel and experience, to be meet others in the dance, to connect when I feel drawn to, to enjoy life, in movement. I feel fulfilled by life and, through the permission, free to experiment, to let myself be surprised at what comes up in me or between me and another and many others.

If you would like to taste what “permission” could bring you, then we heartily invite you to do the 5Rhythms® practice, either in a drop in class, an ongoing group, or a one day workshop (next one is on Saturday 1 June). In these offerings you have the permission to follow your own tempo and find your own pace. We really like to practice weekly and we can very much recommend that to you, but gently find out what works for you.


In May, Edo teaches the joint Fitopia class.

And Nancy offers the workshop "Space and Fascination" on 1 June in Neeroeteren.
