David & Meredith

“If you don’t do your dance, who will?”

Gabrielle Roth

Melbourne’s longest running weekly 5Rhythms class

For nearly 2 decades Meredith Davies and David Juriansz have been a dynamic duo for 5Rhythms in Australia.

Armed with a portable CD player and HiFi speakers they started offering the work in 2000 and Melbourne’s first weekly classes began in 2003.  Their pioneering spirit has turned thousands of people onto conscious movement. 

If you haven’t danced with David and Meredith, you’ve probably danced with someone who has.

Our Story

Our work is grounded in the 5Rhythms, the elegant map given to the world by Gabrielle Roth (1941 – 2012). We trained in the USA and Europe with Gabrielle Roth and senior teachers of this work.

We are committed to having this potent, healing, fun medicine reach as many people as possible.


Moving Essence

We believe there is a unique essence to every individual. To live well is to truly get to know and be ourselves in all aspects – the astounding bits and the disappointing parts.

Sounds good in theory.  Does your mind  get in the way?  Do you experience the voice that tells you  ‘I’m not right’, what I ‘should do’, what you ‘think of others’ or what the future will look like long before you have even reached it.  Welcome to this small sample of the myriad machinations of our ‘monkey mind’.

If you put your body in motion – an amazing thing happens.  This voice quietens.  You’ll come to a class feeling stressed out and disconnected and you’ll leave feeling peaceful, happy and more accepting of yourself.

We’ve been providing this simple, affordable and effective medicine for nearly 2 decades.  We love it and we think you will too.  Visit calendar.

Our inspiration


“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost”

Martha Graham
