Lightening and deepening
This class will explore contact improvisation with a focus on the 'Depth of touch". Initially, we'll play with dances that inhibit giving full weight to see what new pathways emerge. We'll see how playing 'on the edge' of light weight can offer new possibilities and choices for movement and connection. We'll also delve into the deeper realms and see how we can use the light touch to inform the fuller pathways of sharing full weight.
