What is contact improvisation?
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.
