Movement Practice: Contact Improvisation (DAN2210.01)

Felice Wolfzahn

Contact improvisation is a duet movement form. Two people move together, playing in physical dialogue, communicating through the language of touch, momentum, and weight. In these classes we will explore some simple solo and duet skills such as rolling, falling, balance, counterbalance, jumping, weight sharing, spirals, and tuning to our sensory input. We will work with an emphasis on breath, alignment, and releasing excess muscular tension in order to allow more vital inner support to flow through the body. Throughout the classes we will combine skill work with open dancing scores in a supportive and focused environment. Students from all disciplines are invited to join this class (including those who think they have two left feet).
