To be specific..

Wu Tao works on the Chinese Medicine system of energy flow through a network of channels, called meridians.

And these meridians connect with your internal organs.

The 5 dances of Wu Tao relate to the 5 elements and stimulate energy flow through their corresponding organs and meridian system.

So by doing Wu Tao you are stimulating and toning all the organs of your body, which helps to prevent disease and restore health to organs already out of balance.

And the beauty of Wu Tao is that the dances can be learned easily and enjoyed by anyone.

It only takes about half an hour to do a whole dance meditation.

Why this will make a difference to your well-being

About Us

Wu Tao was developed in 2001 by Michelle Locke a West Australian ballet dancer and therapist.

Michelle Locke studied dance at the Victorian College of the Arts and The WA Academy of Performing Arts before joining the West Australian Ballet Co in 1984. Michelle suffered a back injury and was forced into early retirement in 1987, but after leaving the ballet company, embarked on a journey of healing and self-discovery. Looking to find some relief for her back pain, Michelle discovered Shiatsu, a Japanese form of massage. Impressed with the improvement in her back she went on to study it, along with other therapies including massage and oriental medicine. In 1993 on her return to WA, she founded the Shiatsu School of WA.

In 2000, after her second daughter Isabelle became seriously ill and was later diagnosed with Rett Syndrome, Michelle began her research into how to use dance for healing.

Weekly classes in Wu Tao are now held all over Australia, in many metropolitan suburbs and country areas, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Wu Tao teacher training is currently being offered in the major Australian State Capitals, New Zealand and other major international cities.

“Is Wu Tao like Tai Chi?”

While having the same benefits as Tai Chi moves, Wu Tao tones the body more, stretching out every muscle and joint gently and easily.


“Is Wu Tao like Nia, Chakra Dance, 5 Rhythms, and so on..?”

No. These are all free form styles and don’t offer the same healing, choreographed form of dance with beautiful original music composed to restore peace, energy and balance at every level.


“What Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities does Wu Tao use?”

Though it doesn’t use any of these modalities specifically, Wu Tao is similar to:

  • Tai Chi
  • Chi Gung
  • Shiatsu
  • Acupuncture

Because it works by stimulating the flow of Qi (life force energy) through the body.


“Do I have to be in shape to do Wu Tao?”

No, not at all. Wu Tao is very gentle and suitable for all ages and shapes.

Wu Tao is also an effective form of exercise for people with movement restrictions or other physical challenges.


“But I’m not a dancer..”

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never danced before. You can do Wu Tao with 2 left feet! I promise.


“Am I too old/young to do Wu Tao?”

Absolutely not! It doesn’t matter what age you are.. Wu Tao works for everyone. We have people between the ages of 18 – 75 in our regular classes. In fact it’s offered in both primary schools and nursing homes! So you really are never too old or too young to benefit from Wu Tao.


“Do I need any special equipment?”

You don’t need any special equipment to do Wu Tao. You may like to use a towel or a blanket to lie on for the relaxation meditation at the end of the dances.. but I’m sure you have those in your home already!


Do You Need Healing?


  • Are you dealing with grief right now?
  • Are you in pain?
  • Do you suffer from stress, anxiety or depression?
  • Do you feel over-emotional or overwhelmed by life?
  • Have you got any health issues that are stopping you from living your life fully?
  • Maybe things like fatigue, joint pain, stiffness, inflexibility or other physical problems?
  • Do you ever wish you had more energy or motivation?


Maybe you just feel.. off.

You know, that sort of..malaise you just can’t quite put your finger on.

There’s nothing wrong with you but you feel…

  • Unwell…
  • Sluggish…
  • Fatigued…
  • Sad…
  • Your body aches..
  • You feel out of balance and out of step with your true self.

Maybe it’s the way the world is heading. All this technology. The disconnect from nature and each other.

And the constant Go! Go! Go! You’re trying to look after your little ones, be present for your loved ones and aware and conscious of your surroundings.

Really it’s no wonder you’re feeling out of balance.


In Wu Tao You Learn How To….


Let Go

The Air Dance stimulates Qi flow through your Lung and Large Intestine Channels, the ones responsible for helping you let go of what you don’t need physically and emotionally. There’s nothing like the feeling of being fully present and free from the past.

Restore your Life Energy

The Water Dance stimulates Qi flow through your Kidney and Bladder. These organs are responsible for building and storing vital energy. We will teach you how to build your energy through this beautiful dance.

Create What You Want

The Wood Energy in the body is responsible for free flowing Qi and Blood. If it’s blocked you won’t have access to the energy you need to create and express yourself! We’ll teach you how to free up this blocked energy and get you on purpose with your life through the energetic Wood dance!

Transform Yourself From the Inside Out

The Element of Fire is the Great Transformative Energy. It stimulates Qi flow through the Heart which houses your beautiful radiant spirit. The Fire Dance will help you transform EVERYTHING that holds you back from resting in peace. This Dance is incredibly joyful and fun.

Appreciate Everything and Trust Life Implicitly

There is a place inside you that knows Life is a Gift. Through the prayerful Earth Dance you will come to truly trust that Life loves you and you are always supported to grow into more peace, abundance and joy. This dance stimulates Qi flow through the Spleen and Stomach and will bring you to a place of deep inner stillness, peace and gratitude.

6 reviews for Wu Tao Dance- Self-Healing Home Study Program

  1. 5 out of 5


    “I’ve tried many exercise, tai chi and yoga routines over the years but as my mind and body are particularly sensitive, none of them have lasted more than a few weeks or felt interesting enough to pursue.
    I love Wu Tao because it integrates movement, visuals and music and it seems to speak the same language as different parts of my body and energy, without my mental defences coming in to rain on that beautiful parade.
    I usually dance every 2-3 days and I’ve noticed lately that if I go more than 3 days without practicing Wu Tao, my body and energy start to feel not so good and I want to get back to it. And it’s not an effort – yay! Anyway, thank you, Michelle, for making Wu Tao available. It’s been truly helpful to me.

    I just thought I’d write to thank you and to let you know that I’ve been dancing Wu Tao for close to a year now and I love it! Honestly, I’m usually about as graceful as an 18-wheeler and these easy, flowing moves finally let me feel a little more like a swan (now imagine a mix between a truck and a swan – lol!).”

    “I have been doing Wu Tao for a year now and over that year I feel as though I’ve been freed. WuTao is physically and spiritually healing.
    On a physical level, I have had two major healing experiences from WuTao. Last year, just as I was starting Wu Tao, I became very ill. Wu Tao greatly helped me make a full and rapid recovery, for which I’m most grateful.
    Also while practicing Wu Tao I have experienced a great improvement in my eyesight. My optometrist is mystified and surprised by the improvement in my sight, but I am sure this is because Wu Tao works with the meridians, assisting with a number of areas the body. However, we should remember that everyone benefits differently to Wu Tao. Through my exploration of Wu Tao, I have found the benefits to be endless.”

    “After 18 years of numbness in left hand & upper arm due to lymph node removal – I now have feeling back. I came to Wu Tao in an effort to free my spirit – this has worked – I feel Free” Favourite dance – “The Fire Dance! It empties the rubbish, cleanses me from my week and replenishes my spirit”

    “I came to Wu Tao with no preconceptions or expectations and fell into a delightful interplay of light and shadow. The energy was was awesome. I felt alive, fresh and recharged…. All the cliches but more than that, full of laughter. My body loved it and I felt nourished, back in balance with myself and the world. I’ve practised all sorts of body disciplines and Wu Tao just shines for it’s joyful rush.”

    “The Wu Tao course was absolutely wonderful! We are part of everything and today I woke up feeling so grateful. I’m so glad to have together two passions of my life, the Chinese medicine and dance. Thanks!”

  6. 5 out of 5


    “I am loving the experience of dancing again – and a bonus is finding kindred spirits to connect with! I finish Wu Tao feeling relaxed and at the same time energised. I have a heartfelt depth of appreciation for the ‘knowing’ that life will somehow never be quite the same again. Wu Tao is the best thing I’ve done for myself in a long time and I hope I will continue to dance till the end of my days in this body.”
