Moving Space is an opportunity for embodied exploration through conscious dance – an invitation to play, experiment, feel and be. We move to an eclectic range of music, with a little facilitation to help you find your way into your body and connect with your practice, but the emphasis is on offering a space for dances to emerge.
This is a friendly, diverse community of dancers which welcomes newcomers – both experienced movers and complete beginners. There’s no choreography to get right, and no dance experience or ability is necessary, just a willingness to move and offer your attention to what spontaneously unfolds.
Moving Space | Telegraph Hill has a history stretching back to 2001, when it started life as Greenwich Rhythms, a 5Rhythms™ class created just down the road in SE10 by Peter Wilberforce. Like Doctor Who, it has had many regenerations, the latest of which has been the move to our current beautiful space in SE14. I've been dancing with the group pretty much since it started and took over teaching the class in 2016.
What dancers say
“Jess is very aware and always makes the dance feel safe and held. I love her gentle suggestions and the experience itself. I am very grateful for the space and for the opportunity to explore all the parts within me that come up as I move with others and with myself. It’s helping me tap into my joy and playful side.”—Lizzie
“Thank you for such a wonderful class. Just what I needed, and the music was fantastic!”—Michelle“
I loved the choices of tunes – multiple layers that felt like they supported my dance in many ways.”—Christine
