Dear Dancing Friends,

Tonight our final 5 week Monday Moving Meditation series begins: 5Rhythms, 5 Teachers. Empty out at this busy end of the year and let the 5Rhythms: Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness ground you. Tonight – Flowing, with Meredith Davies. 

David is teaching BOTH Early Wave and Tsunami Wave tomorrow night at St Brigid’s.

We have made an adjustment to our class participation guidelines, please read through this message from David:

Some people may not be aware of a Facebook thread in 5Rhythms Dance Melbourne group that started November 1, the morning after the Tuesday 31st October class.
In that class, a couple of women took their tops off while dancing.  I asked if they would put them back on and we speak about it later.  We never got to speak.
Next morning, in Facebook, a third person asked a question of the 5R family in relation to the ‘tops off’ incident and the fairness of this (given that many men often have their tops off) and a healthy dialogue started up.
It was a helpful discussion, allowing us to reflect and get clear about our position on this.  If it interests you – go read the thread on Facebook, or our single Moving Essence post in response (without the context of the thread) can be viewed here: 
At this point in time the key thing to communicate is this:
For all Moving Essence classes, we ask BOTH men AND women to dance with some kind of top on.  Singlets, crop tops, bras, “bros’ or whatever is your fashion.  Quite simply – covered nipples. Bare your soul but not your chest.
Hope this provides a clear guidance for everyone going forward.  This change has been added to our guidelines: 
See you on the dancefloor.
