Making Contact in Improvisation
A workshop in improvisational dance and contact improvisation, with Roel Hammerschlag and Carly Thornburg.
This workshop is open to all levels. Whether you're wanting to increase the choices you can find in your dancing, or wanting to learn a little bit about what contact improvisation is, this is a great way to expand your horizons.
We will talk about and work with partnering and physical touch in improvisational dance, exploring what's comfortable, understanding our boundaries, and learning to respect those. We'll work toward confidence and ease entering and leaving dances. Adding dimensions of contact will increase the variety of what is available to you as an improvisational dancer. We'll also be building movement vocabulary, giving you freedom to grow in your dances.
Practice what you've learned afterward at Olympia Dance Coop, one floor down in the Grand Ballroom starting at 7:30pm!
6pm - 7:30pm
