What is Movement Mass?
Movement Mass is a weekly dance event developed by Melissa Michaels. Rooted in the 5Rhythms®, she has offered this dance in Colorado and other places around the world for more than 30 years. Click to learn more or join our in-person version of Movement Mass.
Each week, we join together in community to remember our wholeness and to amplify our sacred work in these times of great change. We are online once-monthly and/or when needed now. Join us!
A note about Movement Mass Proceeds
We welcome your contributions, your social networking, even your open-source music. We would love for this work to be available to any and all who want to join in on this movement.
And if you are able to contribute more than the requested donation, even in these rocky times, we would be grateful. Golden Bridge is a 501c3 nonprofit organization. Every penny goes directly to the young leaders ready to show up and serve in these times.
For decades, the proceeds from Movement Mass have significantly helped us tend to hundreds of emerging leaders around the world, many of whom live in financially under-resourced communities. Their day-to-day lives are extremely challenging. They are leaders for all of us, brilliant and resilient. Together, our work is rippling out through many of these embodied global leaders, everywhere from Pine Ridge to South India, from the Congo to Rocinha in Brazil, from Baltimore to borders in the Middle East. Many of you know these lightworkers. We remain dedicated to working in alliance with these beloved students/colleagues, near and far. The resources from Movement Mass help make that possible.

Above all, come. Let’s be together in the dance!
“I never want this to end! It’s so….powerful!”
– Amias (4 years old)
“I danced with you yesterday from my son’s hospital room as he slept. It was exquisite to practice with YOU and to dance a full Wave, on Sunday morning, in this small and strange space I’m in. I loved every bit of it and wish this had been available for the past 7 months! Thank you for your efforts. It carried me through the day.”
– Dayna S.

How to work with Zoom.
- Ways to see the screen: Speaker view and Gallery view (top right of zoom screen). You can switch between the two. Gallery view is recommended when we are dancing, so we can see and dance with each other!
