Class Description

Gentle Power with Sarah Young

For advanced dancers interested in learning from beginners, and beginners brave enough to learn from the experience of others. For those who take their time entering into contact, and anyone who's shied away from Contact Improvisation because of a tender joint or wavering confidence. For anyone who's ever fallen apart, kept it together, won a prize, lost a friend, or imagines doing any of these someday.

“Today we are faced with the preeminent fact that, if civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships – the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together and work together in the same world, at peace.” - Franklin D. Roosevelt, Undelivered Speech, 1945

Get yourself to Plainfield, and let's dance.
