The course is suitable for beginners as well as those experienced in the form. You are welcome to join for the whole course, for which there is a discount, or to attend on a drop in basis.

Wednesday 14th January: This first class will be taught by Saskia and will explore ‘ways in’ to the dance.

Wednesday 21st January: This class will be taught by Alistair and will be looking at giving and receiving weight.

Contact Improvisation (CI) 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, it is a form open to all bodies and enquiring minds.

Bring yourself as you are, loose comfortable clothing, kneepads if you have them, a curiosity to explore and an openness to be inspired from new ways in. It also helps to have a notebook to support your learning.
