Come explore the basics of Contact Improvisation in a safe and fun environment. This workshop is for absolute beginners and those with beginners' mind.
Drawing on developmental movement patterns and skills of Contact Improvisation, this class will be accessible for all levels of movers. We will start on the floor with a gentle somatic-based warm up that will help the body to feel gravity. Contact skills of reach, push, pull, fall, sluff, glide and roll will all be employed, using the floor as your loyal partner. Then we will practice with another human partner!
The goal is an aware, alert, and embodied presence that uses the full capacity of the dancer as a human being awake in the world. More embodiment is reached through a deep listening to the relationship to the earth, each other, and the space around us.
Jennifer has been studying dance for over thirty years, studying Contact since 2000 and teaching Contact since 2006. She is a student of EDAM Dance and master teacher Peter Bingham.
