Contact Improv

  • Edgewood Arts Center (map)

Contact Improv is a beautifully engaging practice of creativity, spontaneity, trust, intimacy, and ultimate presence in every moment. This movement practice involves two or more persons although you're not required to bring a partner as you will switch partners many times.

This style of movement rewards releasing patterns in order to explore, play, and discover what aligns for you and in the flow of the moment.

The key to connecting is in a basic agreement to mutually follow a point of contact -- fingertips, hips, shoulders, legs, etc. In exploring how to cooperate with someone in this simple agreement, we discover rich territory for communicating without words; exploring movement and play together; and surprising opportunities to learn more about coordination within our own selves.

All are welcome. Be prepared for a wide range of activity, from solitary and meditative to rolling around on and out of the floor, with each other. We build a sweat; challenge the mind and body.

Dress to sweat!
