This workshop focuses on how bodies move while in physical contact with each other while focusing on the physical laws that govern motion: mass, gravity, momentum and inertia. It is usually taught inside on a beautiful wooden floor and people often work with one or more partners. Contact improvisation trains the body in heightened sensory awareness, weight bearing partnering skills and improvisation. As a social dance it defines and asserts boundaries of intimacy, trust and self. It is a physical practice in democracy that can be profoundly meditative and acrobatic in the same moment.
