We are sorry: this course is full. But you can still enrol to be placed on the waiting list!
Course description

Contact improvisation (CI) is a dance form where the touch with another person is the beginning of a movement exploration. We research and devellop a range of subtle as well as highly physical movement patterns. The focus moves between the awareness of the own body and the connection to the partner’s body and movement. An exploration of movement and its continuous relationship to the physical laws.

CI supports a creative mind, spontaneity and the development of the physical abilities. Each dance is new and different and expresses the personal meeting in the moment.

This course is an introduction into the form. It aims to develop a better understanding of the basic skills and principles like listening, leading, following, rolling, sliding, taking, giving and sharing weight, falling, flowing, lifting. Sometimes we will be dancing solo, sometimes with a partner, sometimes with the whole group.

If you already have some CI experience, join our advanced course on the same dates!
You can also follow this course in Leuven on Wednesday.

Level of experience needed
Level 1: no experience needed, this is a course for beginners or for dancers who want to improve their basic CI skills. We recommend to do the introduction course several times.
Practical information

Bring a bottle of water and clothes which are easy to move in. Also bring light knee pads.
