Readiness (Contact Improvisation Fundamentals)

C and I

C is for Contact. I is for Improvisation. I is also for Imagination, Instinct, Intuition and Sense of Self. We’ll warm up and ground our dancing in CI skills such as integrating center and periphery, moving in spherical space, falling and fluid weight-sharing.

Inside of these kinetic investigations, immersed in the place where movement is its own language and sensation informs design, we’ll cultivate the I’s of imagination, improvisation and the solo mind inside the duet. Replacing ambition with curiosity, we’ll practice investigative art-making, deep play and serious fun.

$15 Single Class, $5 Single Jam, $18 for both

Shifting Viewpoints/ Flying dreams:
Working back and forth between a focus on anatomy/ body-systems, Contact skills (pouring weight, using structure to climb & fly, momentum and physics), and Composition (how we tune into time, space and the dance), we will continually explore different ways into the dance.  We will dive deep into one viewpoint, then shift focus and again, and again, finding at least (3) ways into similar pathways, ‘problems’ to solve, ways of being and seeing, in the dance.
