The Guelph Groove is devoted to providing a safe environment for dancing and meditative movement as a form of self-expression and inner exploration.
We hold our dances to explore and release ourselves from our thoughts and emotions, by fully expressing them in our dance. We are guided in this process by music inspired by Gabrielle Roth’s 5 Rhythms dance philosophy. Our music begins slowly, builds in speed and intensity and then eases off and resolves in a meditative conclusion. We encourage our DJs to play a variety of music from different genres and cultures. The music can be heavily orchestrated or pared down, playful or serious. We try to include a healthy dose of acoustic music and songs with various kinds of drums and other percussive instruments.
No experience is required and no partner; simply focus on the music and respond to the rhythm.
