Class Description


We’ll stay low-to-the-ground, sitting or kneeling on all fours being the highest we’ll come… Often when we’re low to the floor, we melt and cuddle, squash and squeeze; all lovely and delightful. Yet, there are also waýs to move down low that may be thrilling, freeing and wild… we’ll practice and play with various ways to move that could open up new possibilities, pathways and pleasures in your CI…

5.00pm -6.30pm at DMAC, Hamilton House. Class £6 or stay for the jam as well 6.30pm to 8.30pm for £9.

Asher Levin, born and raised in Bristol, lives in Berlin and the countryside of the Uckermark. He teaches regular CI classes in Berlin, at K77 Studio and Tanzfabrik; he teaches at various festivals, generally preferring weekend events, as long festivals may be a bit overwhelming. He can be found this year in Bremen Christmas and New year Jam festivals. Bremen is a very sweet cosy town and the festivals are great. Last year he performed in a history of CI with Company Degadezo in Strasbourg University, which was inspiring and interesting. Mmmm, what else? Rich CI for me is about play, about beauty, beauty of moving from the bodymind, about being willing time and time again to not know what I’m doing, about instantly forgiving myself and enjoying making a mistake or being clumsy or ugly or undefinable, about discovering and showing what I am, what I’m not, how I react or not… it’s about having a frame, a space to meet, move and be together in as free a way as a frame or space allows….Hmmm

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.
