What is Contact Improvisation?
Some have described Contact Improv as a little bit like partner dance, wrestling, movement meditation, and gymnastics all combined into a social art form. Ultimately, CI is an open and on-going inquiry into the body physics of movement in relation to self and other. In many ways it's up to you to define it on your own terms...and enjoy it in the way that works for you.
Yeah, but what's it like?
Can anyone do it?
Will it be fun?
Way fun. And challenging at times. Afterall, what's fun without a little challenge thrown in to spice things up?
What does it cost?
Prices vary depending on the offering.
What do I wear, need to bring to class, etc?
Please come to class wearing loose, comfortable clothing that you can move in. Jeans, belts, anything with buttons, jewlery, and such are not recommended. Water is good. So is your curiosity and willingness to try new things. We dance barefoot.
