This weekly class/jam introduces the basics of Contact Improvisation for beginners and helps experienced dancers clarify and deepen their skills. CI provides a playful way to move together and engaging in a physical conversation. In this dance form, we communicate in the language of touch, and use momentum and shared weight to explore improvised movement, solo, duet, and small group skills. In this class you will experience rolling, falling, spiraling, counter-balance, weight sharing, following a point of contact, as well as meditation/awareness practices drawing from a variety of somatic modalities.

Location Dance Room #4
