See Below for my regular weekly Contact Improvisaiton Class
A regular fortnightly Sunday Body-Mind Centering(tm) workshop is in the planning. Watch this space!
Contact Improvisation Classes – Mondays 7-9m
Contact Improvisation – Drop in for trial (Monday 1st Oct last chance)
My regular Contact Improv classes Mondays 7-9pm near Angel and Highbury & Islington. Suitable for beginners and intermediate.
Monday 1st of October will still be drop in, with a regular block booking needed after that. This will help to facilitate a sense of group and to allow for a progression in skills. The space is limited to a certain number of people. So please do come to drop ins to show your interest. Preference for the block bookings will be given to people attending the first two Mondays.
Starting with embodied anatomy as a basis for active movements, the weekly classes will build up week by week to build a strong basis from which to approach partner dance, lifts and a more dynamic dance with momentum. It will integrate material from Body-Mind Centering and other somatic practices
We will look at:
Floor patterns (Impact, safety and fluidity with the floor)
Spine and Center (The building blocks for smooth movement)
Points of Contact (Rolling, Sliding, Pivoting, Listening)
Lifts, Weight and Structure (simple tricks to help those lifts)
Dynamic Dancing and Momentum (vs static dancing)
Classes will be at a pace that is suitable for all levels, including newcomers and I aim to offer a learning environment that is accessible to everyone.. If possible please contact me in advance with specific needs that you have.
When: Monday 24th of Sept – 7-9pm (ongoing)
Where: Syracusae, 134 Liverpool Rd, N1 1LA (a few min from Angel and Highbury & Islington)
