In Contact Improvisation, dancing is easiest for us when we move with a flowing, flexible and open body. In order to organize efficiently in contact, we need a stable center, the ability to give weight, to listen to movement impulses and to be present in the exciting moment. In this spontaneous, reflective and three-dimensional dance we can experience the freedom and complexity of this beautiful art form through simple principles. We are working on our “Open Bodies Moving Style” with the basic ideas of Contact Improvisation, which apply to all dancers at every level.
In this workshop we will look at the movement principles that I introduce in my beginner courses on a other level: complex coordination of the hands, arms, legs and torso, rhythm changes, weight shifts, quick transitions, improtime. Above all, we are dedicated to the connection to the earth, which enables us to do so and enables us to come closer to the goal of raising movement to a high level of performance.
