This one day workshop is designed to introduce and lay out the fundamentals of Contact Improvisation for total beginners and those who would like to clarify and deepen their introductory skills. Through this playful movement form, two people move together playing in physical dialogue, communicating through the language of touch, momentum, and weight sharing. This workshop will combine improvisational explorations with skill work in a supportive and focused environment.
