About the class

WHAT TO EXPECT IN THE CLASS?

Explore the essence of improvisation, partnering principles and group work to train group listening and choice making. Experiencing meaningfulness instead of forcing the creation of meaning.

Part I: COHESION

We will start warming up and connecting with the function of our own body, using improvisation tools and ideas to create movement that is traveling in and out of the ground, as well as through space. You will become comfortable with the other people in the space and prepare your body to be stable and agile.

Part II: TOOLS

Focus on Partnering tools and exercises to use our movement as a communication tool. The exercises can be free and creative, like working with shapes, guidance: listening/following or resistance: agreeing/disagreeing. 

Other exercises will be focusing on the technique of partnering: sharing weight, giving direction and moving from the center. This will include lifts without using only muscle power but rather want to understand the mechanics of the body.

Part III: MERGING

In the last part the group is guided into an improvisation and composition where the tools from before can be applied. Through a common sense of movement collective decisions are made and the group is listening to itself and the space, while merging together into one ecosystem. Different realities can unfold and give room for exploration in the moment.

I am so extremely NOURISHED and happy with what u do. As I mentioned, beyond Contact-Improv u bring a true GROUP-VISCERAL-POWERFUL-DYNAMIC that goes far beyond the couple-centric obsession that dominates not only dance and CI, but also ... society at large. You bend that couple-centric "truth", you twist that axioma, you challenge it, you laugh at it :) and, in lieu, u bring such a rich-refreshing-playful-unity-in-bodies-skin-and-souls-in-movement-and-true-presence. This is so unique.

You don't need to be a professional dancer, but it is very important to have prior experience and high body awareness as we are moving on at a faster pace.

I can't make it to the class anymore, can I reschedule?
