5 Rhythms dance, the expressive arts and time in nature are used as core tools for professional and personal development, alongside training in effective communication, project management and art based coaching to build personal awareness. We work intensively over several months, developing each participant's own style of embodied leadership and offering teaching and tools to find purpose and a sense of personal power that can serve society in some way. We will develop creativity, confidence and community. Leadership can best be defined as influencing others and having an impact in the world- and this can take a myriad of forms. We will support each other into finding our own personal passion and in moving towards offering work that reflects that, by creating concrete goals towards achieving our personal aims. Yes- dreaming and designing is important- yet action is actually where it’s at! We encourage the women in moving towards working on, with, or for, initiatives that serve society and the individuals within it in some way. We will travel together through this dance/arts based "Rites of Passage" to mark the transition from youth into adulthood and in finding their own style of embodied and authentic leadership within the world. There is powerful support in creating a strong community of same sex peers whom can understand our challenges and encourage us to be the best that we can be. The programme is facilitated by highly experienced arts professionals whom specialise in using dance and the arts for professional and personal development. We believe that creativity and connection is vital to living an inspiring and insight-filled life.

5 Rhythm’s dance is one of the key practices of the programme, developing self awareness and self reflection, interpersonal abilities and increasing physical resilience. We believe that embodiment is a key element in developing effective leadership. We dance both indoors and out, using silent disco headsets to allow us to move in a variety of spectacular outdoor settings and to connect to the wider world around us. We also bring in elements of non-denominational ceremony, a chance for the young women to mark important moments in their life as they move towards their aspirations. Please note that this is not a therapeutic programme, yet we will work deeply with refining our vision, finding our passion, purpose and power and being willing to explore what blocks us from being the best we can be. The work has been kindly supported by 5 Rhythms Reach Out and Arts Council England so that it is accessible to all and any young women who are interested, whatever their income levels and backgrounds are Regularly we have adults asking us can we offer something similar for them, so 2018 will see a long weekend version offered for adults.
