These open levels classes are for anyone who want to practice and expand their Contact Improvisation skills with others.
Communicating through touch and shared weight, each class creates a playful and safe space for experimentation and exploration. Starting with games and tasks to awaken our awareness of inner and outer space. Followed by integrating skills of Contact Improvisation in a simple and guided way. Practicing falling, rolling, floating, lifting and supporting, using gravity to move effortlessly.
We will approach other themes such as following and leading, support, structures and lifts, centre and extremities, shared weight and shared balance, upside down, head to tail connection, dynamics, tonicity and momentum.
