5 Rhythms Dance and more

with Sarah Blagg and Mark Boylan

in Sheffield, Derby, Nottingham, Yorkshire and beyond

Mark Boylan

Mark started dancing 5 Rhythms in around 1995 and teaching it in 2004. He first found his  dancing feet at the free party scene in the early nineties and fell in love with 5 Rhythms as a drug free route to connection with self and others.

He  trained to teach 5 Rhythms to share his love of dance with others and also with the aim of blending the power of movement with practices and rituals designed to reconnect us with the Earth and the natural world

He has taught 5 Rhythms overseas in Palestine, Canada, the U.S. and Poland.  In addition to 5 Rhythms training,  some of his  other qualifications and experience include: professional training in clown with the School of Sacred Clowning, a post graduate diploma in Sociodrama and Action Methods, and PhD in Education. Mark was one the first three ‘pathfinder’ teachers to qualify  as a teacher of Movement Medicine and assists on the School of Movement Medicine’s apprenticeship and teacher training programme.

She has two degrees in Visual Arts from Canadian Universities which included courses in contemporary dance, drama and performance art.
