Come join us in the dance.
Contact Improvisation is dance/sport/art form involving an open-ended exploration of movement by listening with our bodies through a moving point of contact. It is a meeting point of physics, meditation and playfulness investigated within the body and in dialogue with another. In class you will learn: ease of movement as you practice safe ways to share and receive weight; to cultivate awareness and listening with eyes, ears, and skin; to be authentic to your own dance while moving with others. No prior experience required.
"I went to Contact Improv tonight for the first time. I'm not an athlete or a real dancer but it was a fantastic experience. Only the accomplished dancers did lifts or acrobatics. The rest of us established a point of physical contact and kept it moving. It was a hot evening and I was afraid it would be nasty but... it was incredibly sweet and thoughtful. No music but the sound of our feet." -Delia Robinson, age 65
