Every 4th Sunday of the month, the dance floor becomes a learning lab for Contact Improvisation. Old- and new-timers discover the form together with a class that leads easefully into a jam. All dance levels and styles are welcome!
Nowhere to Go, Nothing to Do
This class will focus on the mind of contact improvisation, offering skills that attend to the mental state of waiting, yielding, letting, and not doing.
Let's NOT DO SOMETHING together!
In our urgency to do contact, we can get reactive and anticipatory. We often map an ending to a skill or a dance before it even knows where it wants to go.
We'll learn some fundamentals in this class but really look at mental habits that keep us from savoring the moment, releasing reactivity, and contending with not doing and not knowing.
