Class Description

As promised in March, I shall continue in this class with Part 2 of the work we started in my last class, in March. During this workshop class we’ll look at some of the mechanisms and principles of various simple-but-fun lifts and rides. We’ll explore how we may adapt our bodies to offer invites of lifting / offering a ride or being lifted / taking a ride. We’ll enter into the timing that facilitates ease of lifts. In the flow of dance experiments, we’ll move into how we may incorporate lifts and offers into our unique dances.

Asher Levin has been practising CI for 15+ years. Over the past 10 years he has taught regular classes in Berlin as well as at CI workshops and festivals internationally. Since 2017, Asher has been based in Totnes and has been teaching in Bristol and Dartington

The Jam

A jam is an informal gathering of dancers. There is no teacher, but space and time to develop skills and confidence. You are free to dance, rest, or sit and watch, as you wish. The jam provides an opportunity to explore and integrate techniques you have learned, and to find your own routes into dancing.

At some jams a teacher will facilitate a score to follow such as a focused (silent) jam, the Underscore (developed by Nancy Stark-Smith), or a blindfold (or eyes-closed) jam, this will normally be advertised via our regular mailout – so sign-up if you want advance notice.

  • Live musicians will improvise with the dancing at many of the jams.
  • For more information, please email or contact the individual teachers.
