Contact Improvisation & Partnering

Class description:

An open level course, combining improvisation and play. These sessions incorporate a variety of vital elements within Contact Improvisation and Partnering and consist of three major components: Fundamental Principals, structured movement research and the space to explore, improvise and jam. 

The emphasis of the course is on the enjoyment of moving together with a mixture of simple yet challenging material and tasks alongside improvisation. The class invites participants to be spontaneous and daring in the types and quality of the movement vocabulary, challenging their choices, familiarity and physicality.

Additional notes:

This course will run from Mon 7 – Fri 11 Aug, 2.15 – 3.45pm each day. The course fee of £65 covers all 5 classes.
