D-ST 72714 - Contact Improvisation
Contact Improvisation began as a means to explore the physical forces imposed on the body by gravity and the physics of momentum. Dancers will develop the skills to improvise while in contact with one or more dancers, including the possibility of improvised partnering. This class is geared to dancers who want to further their understanding of Contact Improvisation through a sustained improvisation practice. Areas of exploration will include deepening the connection to the ground, releasing excess muscular tension, developing an internal sense of movement, following points of contact, expanding spatial awareness, and integrating leading and following skills in partnering.
