Moving Space is an opportunity for embodied exploration through dance movement – 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 its inception and took over teaching the class in 2016.

“Dance disappears almost at the moment of its manifestation. It is an extreme expression of the present, a perfect metaphor for life. Dancers sculpt space in real time, working inside a form that is constantly in a state of vanishing. We have no artefacts. I find it strangely beautiful to be creating something that is made of us – made of our breath and blood and bones and mind – something that is made of the space between us. We embody both the dance and its disappearance.”—Crystal Pite
