Movement is a perception touching humanity. An awakened body is a responsive body in all life’s unexpected moments. This moving perception or kinesthetic intelligence can provide opportunities and new choices in meeting with another in an improvisational space. As human beings we need touch and intimacy for nurturing and connection to others. It is rare in our culture that we can play in this space of moving spontaneously with another. Intention is everything and creates the safe space to explore.
Contact improvisation is nearly 30 years old as a dance form and is taught here with Body/Mind Centering principles. Not only do we have the floor but additional moving surfaces of a partner’s body to give unexpected support. Surrendering to the unknown, one relies on the body’s innate intelligence.
Contact Improvisation has no steps, no set choreography and needs no music. Sessions run from 1 to 2 hours in duration.
