Contact Improvisation is a wonderful and expansive practice of connection with self and other. This series will deepen core skills for movement improvisation with others and expand movement potential.

This 5 week all-levels series will deepen your presence with self, expand your movement options, engage and practice the improvisational mindset, and strengthen your toolbox for navigating connection within the dance (including initiating and ending dances, establishing boundaries, safety, etc.).

This series covers the mostly the fundamentals in a different way than the recent June Cultivating Connection series did. The content is designed to be accessible to movers of all abilities and backgrounds, yet equally suited for experienced dancers who want to develop and explore more depth, breadth and nuance in their dance. No previous experience necessary.

This series will be taught by Julia Taylor and CJ O’Reilly.
