Contact Improv Basics + Jam

Contact Improv is a freeform style of dance where two or more people meet, connect, make contact with the body and flow with the energy that's created between them in that moment. There are no rules - there's no wrong way to do it. The wordless creative expression of two people connecting in the present moment is a beautiful art. 

For the first part of the night we teach basic concepts to help you dive into the experience, but there's no choreography, no moves to learn, nobody has to lead, nobody has to follow. We practice exercises to overcome barriers to flow - whether those be physical or emotional. We play with different ways our bodies can connect to feel safe and have a greater range to play in. Then we open it up for a dance jam where we play good music, we move and feel and connect and see what happens. 

Meet us at Divinitree Yoga & Arts this Friday (and every other Friday) 7-9pm. It's $10 at the door. Bring a friend. No experience is required, but it's also a great space for experienced dancers to play and build community.
