Contact Improvisation

Defying Gravity: Contact Improvisation
In this course we will learn to roll, fall, slide, give and take weight, and defy gravity as we develop a physical vocabulary for an athletic partnering technique known as Contact Improvisation (CI). We will build a sense trust of within the class community and develop the skills necessary to take dramatic risks in our dancing and broaden our range as physical performers. The history and philosophy of CI will be covered through various texts including Sharing the Dance and Contact Quarterly. Previous experience is not required, but a hunger to move is a must!
