"No rules, no choreography, just your dance. Samantha curates the safest-feeling, most accepting, and judgment-free space I've ever danced in. Not to mention one of my absolute favorite Cville DJs, in or out of the studio. Each dance is cosmically unique, richly unpredictable, wholly medicinal, the balm for almost any ailment of body soul or mind. And just freaking fun." - Pat McCafferty

About Samantha Lane
About 5Rhythms® - Created by Gabrielle Roth and practiced by tens of thousands worldwide, 5Rhythms is a philosophy, perspective, performance art and a dynamic movement practice rooted in the principle that if you put the psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is both the medicine and the metaphor, reaching across all languages, cultures and age groups to transform suffering into art, art into awareness, and awareness into action. Wherever the 5Rhythms are practiced, a community is born to dance, to sweat, to change, to support, and to provide a safe space for each of us to shatter the ego's hold and awaken the juicy, unpredictable, fascinating, edge-walking, rock star part of ourselves that yearns to be free.
