Introducing our Artists and Space Holders
We are brimming with excitement to announce our line-up of wonderful facilitators, space holders, musicians and artists, to guide, inspire, encourage and hold us on our way throughout our Rumble Camp weekends.
Most will join us for one weekend only, so please check the specific programmes for details of when sessions will be.
One thing for sure is that there will be a diverse yet grounding mix of wonderful opportunities to meet and explore, to sink into our bodies and to find our way to fully welcome ourselves to the space with all that we bring.
Introducing the Rumble 2022 facilitators and artists.. In no particular order..

5 Rhythms with Jason Rowe
Jason fell in love with the 5Rhythms in 2003, graduated with Gabrielle Roth as a teacher in 2011 and has been teaching continuously ever since.
"I’m excited and honoured to be part of the Rumble Camp this Summer offering the 5Rhythms. With space for multiple sessions over several days we will have so much opportunity for real, deep, creative, playful and enriching connections through dance.
The maps of the practice mirror life, and with everyone living together in a festival atmosphere I have no doubt this will be a wonderful experience for seasoned dancers and beginners alike."

HeartWave with Dominik Schnell
Dominik has been passionately engaged in dance for over two decades, exploring performance, contemporary, contact dance as well as many forms of expressive dance styles. He draws from his rich experience as facilitator, combining dance, tantra and process work.
A HeartWave is about connecting us to the deepest parts of ourselves through the power of movement and meditation, held safely as we journey in and out of relating, in and out of shadow, in and out of our fear.
Above all HeartWave is a deeply liberating exploration of our inert yearning for belonging, connection and togetherness. A HeartWave is for everyone, no experience required, solo or couple – all is welcome! More on HeartWaves here

Dance Medicine with Pixi Pete
Hi my name is Pixi Pete, General joy ambassador and ecstatic dance dj. I love deep, dirty, bassy funky music and colourful leggings.

I like to play a wide range of music genres to inspire different forms of movement and dance floor shapes. While currently training in the modern mystery school of the dancing heart path, i have enjoyed expanding my style and music genre choices.
