CI December CounterPulse

I’m teaching this December at CounterPulse.

In this workshop we are practicing freedom supported by contact with other people. Freedom to let your spirit move your body. Contact Improvisation is founded on the principle that anybody can teach it. At the same time we are learning from each person that we dance with. When we embrace that paradox, finding the balance of responsibility and freedom will lead us to self-discovery. Each class in this series will begin with short exercises to expand our awareness and our movement range; Followed by a score to allow deeper discovery, with direct feedback and time to incorporate the feedback in your dance.

 
 

Who Asked for It?

Who Asked for It is a game show where you are quizzed on on your dreams falling from a place like heaven in the sky is where a tango lasts an eternity.

Originally premiered at Dances Made To Order
