Contact Improv

Partner Programming
Cost: $5-10 sliding scale
Thursdays 7:15-9:30 starting 6/1/17
Contact Improvisation is a dance form created in 1972 by dancer/choreographer Steve Paxton. Sometimes referred to as an ‘art-sport’, it incorporates elements of somatic practices, acrobatics and movement to explore the principles of physics (gravity, momentum + centrifugal force) through contact with other dancers. CI is now practiced throughout the world and is used as a tool for movement research, choreography, physical awareness and exercise.

And it’s fun!

All levels of experience welcome, no experience necessary but classes can be physically intense!

Class will consist of a structured beginning that may involve Labs or Skill sharing and will end with a Jam (open movement space).

Bring loose fitting comfortable clothes and water (no shoes needed)
