About this Event
Deep Waves is a monthly Saturday high-spirited dancing dive into the medicine of the 5Rhythms. We gather for an evening of music, movement, embodied ceremony, and community connection.
Danced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms is a dynamic freestyle movement practice. Dancing Wave upon Wave of the 5Rhythms, we practice the art of being fully alive in the present moment, to all that moves through us. Come dive into your own deep dance, with a circle of other dancing seekers of the sacred. Come reSource, come release, come ride the Wave!
All movement experience is welcome. Pre-registration is required

Tiered pricing is available so that those of us with more can share, and those of us who could use some support can receive it. When you register at the Supporter rate, a portion of your registration fee is applied toward another dancer's reduced-rate spot. If a lower price will make the classes accessible for you, please register at the 'Supported' rate. If you know you want to dance regularly, and these prices are a barrier for you, please email me at [email protected] for a possible work exchange or partial scholarship.
We expect any dancers experiencing cold/flu symptoms to stay home to care for themselves, and the rest of the group.

If you choose to attend this indoor class, you acknowledge that though we are taking precautions, there is still a risk of contracting Covid as a result of attending, and you are assuming full responsibility for your choice to attend, and any illnesses or injuries that may result.
There are no refunds. If you must cancel your attendance due to testing positive for Covid, you will be offered a class credit which can be applied towards a future class with Layah. If you are unable to attend for other reasons, first please let us know so we may release your spot to another dancer. In the event that we are at capacity and we are able to fill your spot, you will be offered two options: you may donate your tuition to the scholarship fund, or you may receive a class credit which can be applied towards a future class with Layah. No credits will be issued for no-shows, or if we have not reached capacity. To request a class credit, please email [email protected].
Layah is a healing artist ~ a teacher, dancer, and musician. Layah first fell for 5Rhythms in her late teens and for the last 20+ years has steeped herself in movement meditation practice. Passionate about offering people sacred space to experience motion as medicine, Layah has facilitated expressive movement since 2003 for all ages on all kinds of dance floors: classes, gyms, offices, barns, fields, and studios, including at Toronto's conscious dance hubs The Move, and Ecstatic Dance Toronto. Her transformational journeys focus on embodiment, and broadening our physical, expressive vocabulary as a gateway to creativity and healing. Layah is a member of the International Conscious Movement Teachers Association, and a certified 5Rhythms teacher accredited with the 5Rhythms Teachers Association. All study hours with Layah count as prerequisites towards future 5Rhythms teacher trainings.
