Sue Rickards


Sue is a book reading, dog loving, wild swimming, clay squashing, word smithing, human being, wool knitting, day dreaming, allotment digging East End gal residing in North London.  Her passion for conscious dance began in 1990 after years of disco dancing and parties.

-Trained as a Sesame Drama and Movement therapist in 1990
- Trained by the late Gabrielle Roth to teach 5Rhythms® in 1994 and has been holding classes and workshops wholeheartedly since.
- Studied humanistic counselling and psychotherapy, bringing a greater depth to her dance teaching.
- Ongoingly touched and inspired by Movement of Being.
- A Founding Member of Open Floor International 2014
- A member of ICMTA.

Perhaps some of her happily misspent youth, hitchhiking round the world, feeling free and alone and connected, was also part of her training; when she finally landed home again in London, the travelling became more internal and found its way to the dance floor. Here she finds a landscape as rich and as daunting, as wild and as passionate, and people as diverse and as fascinating as she ever found travelling the globe.

I love and appreciate that Sue gives full permission for whatever needs to move, with a sensitivity and playfulness that allows for true depth -always know I'll meet my moving self on her dance floor.   (KS)

A workshop with Sue is a good and safe place to be. Nor danger or risk to visit one's dark, painfull, silly, peculiar, joyfull, embarrassing corners. They are all welcomed and enlightened. No judgement here, but tons of love and encouragement to include them all.

And then there's the musique of course! Beautiful, odd, touching, deranging, humourous (....I forgot to mention her humour!...) etc....My english is far too limited to describe the range of possibilities.
