The Work and Play of Contact Improivsation
Each of us has experienced heightened states of being through contact improvisation-times when we felt fearless and alive. There are no recipes to create these moments, but training can lay the foundation for physical and emotional breakthroughs. In this class series I am specifically interested in developing our reflexes, our coordination, and the capacity to continually recycle our mental and physical energies back into the dancing. At the core is the commitment to staying with the modulation of tone and weight in the body-so that the touch remains alive.
The practice of contact improvisation includes the ability to move with ease and efficiency, the integration of the head, spine and limbs, and the ability to motivate movement from multiple centers within the body. Students in the workshop will learn specific technical skills, somatic techniques, and principles of awareness and improvisation.
I am committed to individual coaching and group investigation of specific aspects of the work. Come with questions, energy and commitment to serious training and playful, imaginative dancing.
All levels & drop-ins welcome. If you have question about if this class is right for you please contact the instructor at firstname.lastname@example.org
