Expanding into space : an investigation of spatial support
Support can come from orientation to space as well as from the earth. Spatial support brings lightness and expansiveness to dancing CI. It’s the key to all the flying skills and a sense of freedom and independence in dancing with another.In this workshop we’ll study the relationship between structural and spatial support, bring what we learn from that into our practice of CI technique, and explore what this expanded awareness of space can bring to open dancing together.

Malcolm Manning : I think of myself as a somatic movement researcher, educator, mentor and artist. In my classes, I share my inquiry of what it is to be a thinking, feeling, moving subject in this world through developing a dialogue with ourselves and our environment in which we are empowered to be our own experts.

I am certified to teach the Feldenkrais Method® and the Body And Earth work developed by Andrea Olsen and Caryn McHose. I studied for two years at SNDO Amsterdam and have an MA in Dance Pedagogy. I have also made extensive studies of Contact Improvisation, Authentic Movement, Movement Shiatsu, Body Mind Centering and experiential anatomy. For more info visit
