Somatics + Contact Improvisation, Viroqua, WI
These classes will cultivate body awareness through mind/body explorations, pathways in space, alignment practices through movement. Based in the Global Somatics Process(TM) and Body-Mind Centering(TM), this class will have us root into our bones, breath and the space around us -- asking how we can inspire our own movement through contact with another. (See below for more info on Contact Improvisation)
Contact Improvisation is a dance form based on moving spontaneously while maintaining contact between one or more people. The form teaches us how to support and be supported, how to be off-balance, what it means to feel ready, and trusting yourself all the way to the floor. A gender-inclusive, social dance form, CI invites gravity, weight-bearing, and counterbalance explorations that help us navigate ourselves in space and in relationship.
