This beginner/intermediate Contact Improvisation workshop will explore spirals, falls, basing, and flight, while attuning to tone and states of awareness. Moving through different levels, we will start with rolling on the floor and work up to flying. We’ll leave newcomers with enough movement patterns to thrive in Contact Improv jams, and everyone with some more skills and avenues of exploration.
Liana and Jason have been dancing together at jams for about 20 years. We invite you to come play and explore with us for the day at Earthdance. We encourage bringing a beginner’s mind and an openness to the delight of newness and the present moment.

Jason Woofenden has always enjoyed agility and physical play. Throughout his childhood, that was climbing trees, sledding, soccer, exploring streams, etc. In his early twenties, he discovered a passion for dance; first, at a freestyle dance, where the wide variety of dance styles helped him be comfortable exploring his own movement inclinations. Through that community, he discovered Contact Improv, which fills him in so many ways. He’s been dancing, exploring, and growing through this form for 20 years, and teaching it on and off for the last 6 years.
