Apr 23: Fluidity & Receptivity through the Joints Workshop

Tuesday, April 23, 2013
Workshop: 5:30-8:00pm
Location: Boulder Circus Center (4747 26th St, Boulder CO)
Taught by Alicia Grayson and J. Akiyama

In this Contact Improvisation workshop we will explore the dynamic possibilities that attending to the joints, particularly the spine, can create in our dancing.

Specifically we will:
  • Explore the full range of mobility to stability through the joints
  • Find ease in our joints to change levels with fluidity and buoyancy
  • Experiment with using joints for hooks, ledges, and counterbalance
  • Discover some of the endless ways that two bodies can meld through the joints

This workshop is open to dancers with intermediate/advanced contact improvisation skills.

Cost: $35 if paid before April 9, $40 after April 9.  $65 sign-up for both Tuesday workshops (on 4/23, 4/30).
