"The fastest way to still the mind is to move the body"
Tineke: "For me the 5rhythms are so great because it's so deep and wise. Dancing in general is delicious: moving your body, blend in with the music, coming home in yourself. But within the seemingly simple 5 rhythms you may find great wisdom where I – every time I dance – from which I learn and grow".
"In my classes I take you in this fascinating dance meditation, into this mystery of life, in the magical world of movement, shapes, gestures: your body, your soul, your history, your habits, your blind spots, your emotions, your relation to others, your connection to the universe. If I only could do one thing in my whole life, then I would just dance the 5rhythms...”

Dance the 5 Rhythms in Haarlem:
Thursrday evening by Tineke de Wit.
In Tineke’s entire life dancing took a central place. As a child she intensively performed rhythmic gymnastics with balls, clubs and hoops. Many times, together with her gymnastics club Quick (by teacher Akke Smit from Leeuwarden) they became Dutch champion. This stopped, when Tineke was about twenty years old she was looking for other ways to move her body. Fortunately, a few years later Duende came on her path, a modern theatre dance group in Friesland under the leadership of artistic director Grietine Molenbuur. With Duende she performed in theatres and at street festivals throughout the country. She loved the creativity and adventure.
Around her thirtieth she left the Duende group but she still felt the need for dance and moving her body. For some years there was less active movement but she became a dance journalist and lecturer in history of Western theatre dance. Through consciousness training (Osho) she again started to dance with dance meditations and she discovered the 5 rhythms. It was if she was struck by lightning: this is what she wanted to do, this is what she wanted to share with other people.
Tineke: "in October 2014 I completed the 5 Rhythms teacher training by Gabrielle Roth and I became a member of the 5RTA. Dance and music are part of my daily life. A dream became a true and my wish is to share with everyone the great experience of dancing the 5rhythms, the dancing of yourself, the dancing of your own life. "
Besides 5rhythms teacher and DJ Tineke is also team leader of Social Work training at the InHolland University in Haarlem and mother of 2 boys.
