I have been doing contact improv for 10 years.
Contact has become a central part of my life.
It deeply affects all aspects of my being.
Physical, mental, emotional and Spiritual.
As martial artist who has been practicing for over 30 years
I usually integrate some martial arts principles into my classes.
The overlap between the two arts is astonishingly useful.
My dancing has made me a better martial artist,
And the martial arts has made me a better dancer.
I am one of the regular teachers at the Toronto Sunday Jam.
Even though I teach on a fairly regular basis
I actually consider myself a full-time student of contact.
I am always a beginner looking to learn, grow
and expand my knowledge and ability.
Every time I dance I learn something new
and it fills me with so much joy.
And joy is the primary reason that I do contact.
I love to move, I love to learn and I love to have fun.
That sounds like a pretty good combination for a workshop!
