CONNECT :: Contact Improv

Contact Improv is an improvisational dance form. Created in 1972, it is a dance of motion and momentum where we explore how our body relates to another with the addition of these elements. We focus on the point of contact and learn to listen and move with the emerging dance that comes when we connect with another.
Whether a simple dance of hands, or rolling on the floor to flying in the air, Contact Improv provides a frame to move into connection in a new way, curiously allowing a “score” or dance scene to emerge. We move through different exercises including some solo practice as well as partner dances to find the foundations that create the space for spontaneity. After the workshop we have a little time for an open jam where we practice the exercises from class, learning how to initiate and end a dance. This is a great opportunity to explore how we connect in a space where words are not the primary language. It is also wonderful if your looking to try partner dancing or to expand your own relationship to dance!
