Sweaty Thursdays


Sweaty Thursdays is a weekly drop-in class held in Vauxhall, usually held by Christian de Sousa.

It's rooted in the 5Rhythms map, with Movement Medicine practices and other influences woven into the mix. It's a vibrant dancefloor open to anyone who wants to move, offering a balance between focussed teaching & practice, and the freedom to dance, clean-out and connect to soul.

The first Thursday of the month always includes some introductory / back-to-basics teaching, recommended for beginners and old-hands alike.

Please note:
1. The class begins at 7.30; please arrive for the beginning and stay until the end at 9.45
Doors open at 7 and close at 7.45, or sooner if we reach capacity, which happens quite frequently. Come early!
2. Sweaty Thursdays and other dancingTao spaces are meditation spaces; they are drug and alcohol-free.

There is no Sweaty Thursdays class on Easter Maundy Thursday

We are a social enterprise committed to earning our bread by bringing movement practice into service of people and communities. Your generosity supports us to take the dance to people who may not otherwise have access to it.


Please consider your means honestly - and give what you are able and what you would wish to receive. Thank you!


We do not want finance to be an obstacle to anyone dancing, so if you are unable to pay the concession rate, please get in touch.
