Celebrating contact improvisation: community, practice, technique

Warm up 6pm- 6.30pm followed by a jam until 9pm $5 

Classes 6pm- 7.30pm followed by a jam until 9pm $10-15

 This special series is an amazing opportunity to learn from some of the Twin Cities most experienced movement teachers and improvisers. Together we will explore how our bodies move while in physical contact with each other while focusing on the laws that govern motion:  mass, gravity, momentum and inertia. We will train the body in sensory awareness, weight-bearing partnering skills and improvisation. Class will be playful, meditative and acrobatic and followed by an open jam.  People of all levels of experience are welcome to come learn contact improvisation together in this safe environment.
