Movement Practice: Intermediate Contact Improvisation (DAN4118.01)

Felice Wolfzahn

For those with prior technique and/or improvisation experience. In this duet form, we communicate through the language of touch, momentum, and weight. We will explore simple solo and duet skills such as rolling, falling, balance, counterbalance, jumping, weight sharing, spirals, and tuning to our sensory input. We 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 combine skill work with open dancing scores in a supportive and focused environment.

Prerequisites: Prior experience in technique and/or improvisation practices and permission of dance faculty.
