Dancing Reflexive: Meeting Our First Dance Partner and Re-Writing Stories of ‘Dance’ – Contact Improv Workshop – Feb 22nd and 23rd


Price are Sliding Scale. Pay up the sliding scale to support scholarships and teachers.

We re-member, re-meet, and re-discover our first dance partner: ourselves.

In this workshop we explore the foundation for your movement, exploration, expression, safety, and… your dance.

in a process of re-discovery, we question and discover – through movement, somatic and language – our relationship to dance, the limits of our movement, and where we find excitement and curiosity. This creates a foundation for listening and communication, for self knowledge, self care, communication of boundaries, and for your dance.

This workshop explores concepts and movement explorations integral to the practice of Contact Improvisation, done largely with one’s self in a group. It includes personal and group exploration of concepts and ideas around dance through discussion and movement. In addition to solo movement, there will be partnered and group movement work.
