Class Description

A Moving Conversation

Diving into the pool of CI fundamentals we will explore, the conversation of touch, moving in contact and how the simple skill of rolling point can be the basis of all manner of dances……or as much of this we can fit into a class!

Come wanting to Dance!

Lee Bolton

For me dance and movement can uncover the nature of relationship between things. Connections within – fascia and connective tissue for example, and with others – how is it to meet another, with ourselves – is it ok to show up as I am, and with life – letting things be as they are. This is my current thread.

I have been dancing and moving for the past 15 years. Ecstatic dance, contact improv, somatics, movement in landscape and warm water and it’s all taken me on a journey of personal discovery. I offer space to you for this exploration.

I currently teach Embodied Enquiry and Contact Improv in Bristol and have taught in Europe and Internationally.

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.
