Gabrielle Roth, 1941-2012

Blog post, November 27 2012

Gabrielle Roth died in New York on Monday night.

If you’re a 5 Rhythms dancer, you probably already know this. If you’re not, then this may mean nothing to you. All the same, I felt the need to mark her passing in my own brief way.

I never met her, though I know several people who did. I love the dance practice that she created.

On Monday evening our local group in Glastonbury knew that – as her family had put it – she was ‘moving into stillness’. We danced with her picture on the altar.
