Class Update

Dear Dancing Friends,

Hey Melbourne dancers! 

I’m very much looking forward to be on your home ground again, humbled and steadied by a few more years since I last was there. 

I’m cradling a flame in my hands to bring to you… Many years ago, a friend suggested I create a workshop centred in the essence of my medicine, my style of teaching the rhythms. Riding the Wild Fire is that workshop. It’s one of my favourites, and though it’s developed over the years as my own fire has become more balanced and grounded, still it’s a wild ride. 
Delighted to be offering it in Melbourne. See you on the floor. 


Early Bird for Adam’s workshop ends on Friday! If you’re ready to Ride the Wild Fire, click here to book a discounted place.

All classes this week are listed below.
Happy rain dancing,

All the team at Moving Essence
