Saturday, November 24, 2012

Do you want to explore the magical world of lifts within contact improvisation?

In this two hour workshop, we'll explore using minimal effort to incorporate lifts and flight in our contact improvisation dancing.  You'll learn efficient methods of creating mobile support through proper use of alignment and harnessing momentum.  Through solo and partnered exercises, we'll work on finding internal power and dynamic balance through our centers, pouring our weight appropriately and elegantly, and extending our reach upward and outward.  Experience how effortless and fun lifts can be!  

The workshop will be aimed at those familiar with CI principles who feel eager to explore the dynamic realm of lifts by expanding choices and techniques.


There will also be a two hour jam (3:00-5:00pm) after the workshop (open to everyone!).  


Cost: $20 for workshop; $5-10 for jam.
