Contact Improvisation

9 september @ 19:00 - 21:00

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 19:00 on woensdag, repeating until 1 oktober, 2020

Contact Improvisation

Otto will teach a weekly in-depth Contact Improvisation class, using his background in contact improvisation, contemporary dance/floorwork, acrobatics and more.

The class is open for all levels, from beginners to advanced dancers. The classes will be given as short courses of 4 weeks. This will give us the opportunity to dive deeper into the material with the same group of people for (at least) 4 weeks. We can repeat excercises and incorporate it into free dance so it gets into our body. Lifts, weight sharing, being aware of your moving body and that of your partner, rolling point of contact, rolling on the floor and up in the air! Every 4 weeks another theme will explored.


Because we have two hours per week, there will be a lot of time to integrate everything into your own dance, letting everything go and enjoy the rich world of contact improvisation.
