“dance is my thing, always has been, always growing, learning, exploring, playing. It’s how I move through the world. Dance is my profession, my passion, my healing, my skill, my service”
Rivka Worth thrives on bringing humans together in ceremonial dance, where freedom, connection and transformation are individually and collectively embodied on the dance floor. Her dance floors range from inner city church halls, sandy lined shores, leafy green forest beds and red desert earth. Rivka is dedicated to connecting us back to nature through our own embodiment. As we listen into ourselves, just like a shell, we hear country. Everything we need is in nature. We are nature.
Rivka has been dancing since the womb, She has been a space holder/facilitator of expressive and somatic movement for 27 years, danced 5Rhythms for over 25 years and a certified 5Rhythms teacher since 2014. Rivka is a nature lover, a DJ, a long-time student of yoga, contact improvisation and body mind centering. She has a BA in Dance and is a student of the university of life. Rivka is currently studying as a Somatic Movement Educator.
Rivka is known for her creation of deep dance journey spaces. She is a committed 5Rhythms® dancer and teacher bringing decades of dance and movement experience to her classes and workshops. She works with all sorts of beings, of all ages in diverse settings as a Community Dance Practitioner. Her practice is creative, expressive, intuitive and shamanic. She holds space for you to dance your own dance in collaboration with one another and the earth we inhabit. Heart to heart, centre to centre, bass to bass, Rivka, also a DJ, draws on deep, medicinal, multi-faceted music to catalyse energy on the dance floor and transport your journey all the way.
