This contact-improvisation class is a movement practice exploring focused touch and weight-sharing while also challenging our sense of risk, play, and attention. This class will be open level. The main idea of this type dance is to cultivate a sense of listening. We’ll spend the time exploring core physical principles of the form: weight sharing, risk, focused touch, falling safely, change of speed. All of this will be done with a partner. We’ll spend the time warming up together, creating a sense of trust and patience, and then diving deeper into other qualities.
