In these lessons we will go through the fundamental principles in Contact Improvisation: sharing weight, balance, off-balance, trusting the floor, our partner and ourselves, momentum, manipulation, rolling point of contact, flying, lifting and improvisation during a dance. We will explore as well the psychological and philosophical of this wonderful form of dancing.
The lessons are intended for people who wish to explore and learn more of this wonderful way of dancing. No prior dancing experience is needed, if you have dancing experience it will make your progression faster.
The classes take place every week on Thursday, 20:15 – 22:15.

In this period when the corona virus is still among us, it is important that we make sure that it will not spread further, while coming back to normality and allowing life, art, and dance to come back.
For this – we ask you to sign in, in advance by mail – and in the registration to add your phone number (we will have limited number of participants).
1 – If you feel sick up to a week before the session avoid joining in.
2 – Washing your hands before entering the studio.
3 – If you feel sick a few days after the class, we ask you to check if it is indeed Corona, and to let us know – so we can inform the other dancers who were in the class with you.
With these measurements we wish to take together the responsibility for containing and not spreading the virus while allowing normal life to come back and dance to continue.
Contact improvisation is a dance technique that was introduced in the early seventies by Steve Paxton. Its main issue is the physicality of two or more dancers that move together in contact. It can be a fast and acrobatic dance, or a gentle, quiet and attentive dance. The dance changes all the time and allows the dancers to explore themselves, their body language and the way they are interacting with other people.
