This CI class will be a study of human biomechanics in interaction with gravity, inertia, and the whole wide world. Shared support structures, spatial and temporal awareness, emotional impulse and social etiquette at jams will all be on the agenda. We’ll also occasionally touch on the history and evolution of contact improvisation, looking at questions of both performance and performativity. These classes are for all bodies at all times; they take place in the spirit of joint investigation and inspiration.
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 taking classes and exploring the jams. 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.
