"To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self. Sweat is holy water, prayer beads, pearls of liquid that release your past. Sweat is an ancient and universal form of self healing, whether done in the gym, the sauna, or the sweat lodge. I do it on the dance floor. The more you dance, the more you sweat. The more you sweat, the more you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come to ecstasy." - Gabrielle Roth Sweat Your Prayers® is a dance gathering where we bring our individual 5Rhythms® practice and move through the Rhythms of Flowing, Staccato, Chaos, Lyrical and Stillness with dedication and freedom. The intention of this class is to have spaciousness and relatively little formal instruction, relying on the individual to create and support one’s own journey into the Wave of music. From exploring the endless boundaries of these 5Rhythms we develop, as Gabrielle often taught, the discipline needed to be a free spirit, and thus the freedom to wholly dance with the sacredness of oneself, another, and community. Adults and teens of all levels of ability welcome!

Artist Biography

Margaux A. Skalecki Medicine Dancer

Margaux A. Skalecki, earned her BFA in Dance at the Boston Conservatory and her Masters in Expressive Therapies at Lesley University. A Reiki Master, commissioned healer, animal communicator, and shamanic journey facilitator, Margaux offers ceremonies and workshops for healing, awakening, reclamation, and liberation. She birthed TRINITY: The Dance-Tantra-Shamanic Practice ®, as an offering to explore the ancient ways of understanding the depth and breadth of who we really are. We are a deeper intelligence with unprecedented possibilities of co-creation in conscious and loving connection for all Beings. An ecstatic, teacher, and flame keeper of The 5Rhythms Movement Practice ®, Margaux offers Sweat Your Prayers ®, Waves ®, and Heartbeat ® workshops nationally. As a member of the #METOO movement, Margaux has always been an advocate for healing and respect for all genders. The workshop "Pathways to Understanding and Harmony for Men and Women" was birthed forward because our communities still request outlets to commune together to listen deeply, share truthfully, and acknowledge the power of what was, what is, and what can be. Margaux is the director of Being Seen Being Heard ®, an intergenerational and people with different abilities theater arts performance company. The ensemble builds bridges of connection for the emergence of playful and profound possibilities of performance. For decades, Margaux has shared her high vibration, ceremonies, and trust in the divine, in everything she does. Her mission is to exquisitely support and encourage everyone to be seen and heard in the dance, in the song, in the journeys of connection, and the understanding of life in the seen and unseen realities.
