Space, the First Frontier
We come from space, I don't mean dropped by a stork, or a UFO, I mean embryologically, molecularly...This class will focus on sourcing the Improvisation part of Contact Improvisation in the space we have inside, outside, between us, and around us.  We'll explore the following:  touch, exchanging weight, rolling, spiraling, expanding and condensing, parting to explore solo time, and joining with others.
