9:30-1:00 pm - Authentic Movement into Contact
We will begin this class with a deep solo exploration, and gradually layer in active witnessing and partnered touch, leading to a kind of contact duet that is evocative and image-based. We will explore how our vision, both inward and outward, can enhance and enrich our solo experience, and how witnessing our partners in various ways can fine-tune the perception of our listening bodies.
2:30-5:00 pm - Trio Superpowers!
Contact Improvisation is primarily a duet form, but there are wonderful possibilities when a third partner becomes a creative and exciting enhancement to a dance, accentuating momentum instead of interrupting it. We will explore ways to connect with multiple partners to encourage lovely lifts, melting falls, and moments of easy suspension and flow. For experienced Contact dancers who are ready for some delicious disorientation.
