Contact improvisation: introduction
Contact improvisation (CI) is a dance form where the touch with another person is the beginning of a movement exploration. The focus can lay and move through the awareness of the own body, the connection to the partner’s body, the movement flow, in it's 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 class 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.
