HOW TO PREPARE FOR CLASSES
Wear clothes that are not slippery and cover a lot of skin surfaces. Thin long sleeve shirts and tshirts work well.
Please don’t wear jewelry, clothing with zippers or buttons that could scratch your partner.
Please don’t wear scented products.
We dance barefoot so footwear is not an issue.
Kneepads are useful if you have them but not necessary.
If you’re feeling physically unwell (cold, flu, etc.) please join in another time.
If you have questions please get in touch:
Contact Improvisation is a kind of social dance. If you could surf, do partner yoga, wrestle and dance at the same time, you would get the feeling for Contact Improv. Dancing ranges from small, slow and subtle to fast, energetic and acrobatic. The choice is yours!
Through a series of exercises, we explore the fundamentals of balance and counterbalance, ways of moving while in contact with a partner, and other useful movement patterns. Participants are often moving in and out of physical contact while rolling, sliding, spiraling, springing, flying and falling. Other exercises will explore body awareness, creative impulses, and the moment-to-moment responsiveness to ourselves, others, and the space around us.
