Class Description:

Class combines skills and applications of decades of somatic researches that include release techniques and body-mind practices that explore transitions and systems and patterns of development and evolution, embodiments of Contact Improvisation, and dance tunings within solo, duet (strong emphasis on partnering), and ensemble dancing. The interest and focus are in the very physical, sensorial, and imaginative, and in discovering new challenges and risks within our movement – of both body and mind – towards improvisational and compositional processes. This class plays with honoring the individual within the ensemble. Each student brings their own unique history into a shared experience of creating together a living presence.

(athletics: involving the use of physical skills or capabilities, as strength, agility, or stamina; intimacy: closeness of observation or knowledge of a subject)
