Explore the fundamentals of Contact Improvisation, an open-ended form of dance that embraces the kinesthetic possibilities of bodies moving through contact. Build skills through exploring principles of weight sharing, embodied listening, and collaborative movement. Each session will be organized into two parts. The first half of each session will focus on a particular skill or principle. The second half of the session will move into an open jam (with some guidance), in which participants are able to integrate what they’ve been learning. All levels of experience are welcome.
