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.
In the class we will explore all the various ways of working with the centre. Unweighted and weighted, moving and still, the centre will become our tool to understand the principles of improvised dance we are willingly engaging in.
The facilitation into an open jam will include an authentic movement dance score.
All are welcome, please make sure you are familiar with the Contact Improvisation Dance guidelines and come awake and ready to play.

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.
