What it’s all about - some suggestions for dancing together:
Come explore movement and the diversity of dance through the physical principles of touch, momentum, gravity, levity, shared weight, and following a shared point of contact with one or more dancers. Play with us as we practice the skills of falling, rolling, balance, counterbalance, lifting with minimal effort, making yourself light when being lifted, centering, breathing, and responding to your partners and your surroundings. The energy of the dance ranges from slow and subtle to highly physical. We offer an open floor and an opportunity to journey into dance improvisation and conscious movement at your own pace. Through our dance, we hope to expand the Contact Improv Community of dancers and gather for fun and creative connection! Open to all levels, no previous experience is necessary.
We request that you familiarize yourself with these guidelines before you begin dancing in the space. They are also clearly posted in the space. Feel free to ask clarifying questions of any of the eight Contact Collective members. Our photo and names can be found on the Contact Information Page of this site - as well as in the dance studio.
Keeping the dance space safe and welcoming is an ongoing, collaborative process. We consider all input with great intention.
