The Contact Improvisation Class and Jam takes place EVERY TUESDAY year-round at CounterPULSE. The class is sequential, but drop-ins are encouraged. The best learning experience comes from trying out the styles of at least 3 of our monthly teachers. CI deepens your flexibility, kinesthetic awareness, and choices for contemporary partnering. Explore the discipline and play of this dance form with both class study and jam practice. The jam is a no-music (quiet) jam. We recommend taking class before attending your first jam.
Cathie Caraker’s June Class: C and I
C is for Contact. I is for Improvisation. I is also for Imagination, I is for Intuition and I is for Sense of Self. This series will cultivate all of these I’s and more. We will warm up and ground our dancing in Contact skills such as integrating center and periphery, moving in spherical space, falling and fluid weight-sharing…
While 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 as we celebrate the I in CI.
