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.

Spiral Body Class Description

Spirals are everywhere in nature. Spirals are everywhere in our bodies. Spirals are incredibly supportive in our contact improvisation practice as well. In this class we will be looking at some useful movement paths and habits that will help you with safe and effortless weight sharing in contact improvisation. Accessing some of body’s hidden movement support we will explore possibilities to make our dances richer and more free. Tried and true material collected over the years of practice. Beginners and intermediate level assumed.
