Contact Improvisation is based on the physical exploration of how the body moves through its own intelligence and how two or more bodies in contact with each other can move together. A dance that fine tunes your senses and wakes up your ability to listen and respond to what is happening in the moment. Sometimes wild and athletic, sometimes quiet and meditative, and all levels in between. It is a form open to all bodies and inquiring minds.
The class will be led from 6 – 7.30pm leading into open jam from 7.30pm – 8.15pm. The whole session runs from 6 to 8:15. Please be on time or you might not be able to take part.
Dancing with a growth mindset
Using insights from positive psychology we will also move with exercises from Nita Little (a student of Steve Paxton in the 1960’s) finding continuous motion, coming away from stasis in body-mind into growth and freedom, depth and connection!
Sam is a CI facilitator and Dance Movement Psychotherapist.
The last Sunday of each month will be an open jam from 6 – 8:15pm with a live musician.
These Sunday sessions are run and taught by a community of contact dancers. Classes are open to all levels and generally led by a different teacher each week.
Participants are responsible for their own safety and wellbeing in the jam. Take care to be alert and sensitive to yourself and others. The organisers cannot accept responsibility or liability for injury.
