Blake Nellis & Taja Will

Blake Nellis & Taja Will have been working together since 2005 and are currently based in Minneapolis, MN. Together and separately they have taught improvisational skills, somatic modalities and Contact Improvisation across the United States and internationally. Will’s visceral agency paired with Nellis’s uncanny timing is unstoppable. Their teaching and performing work moves fluidly through states of nuanced connection and athletic rigor. Dance critic Lightsey Darst comments, “Will and Nellis are top-shelf movers and movement inventors.” Nellis is currently in faculty at Luther College in Decorah, IA and frequently performs in the Twin Cities. Will is engaged as a choreographer and activist, and practices as a somatic body worker, intuitive psychotherapist and energy medicine practitioner.
