1. Foundation and Discovery in Contact

Weekly classes in Contact Improvisation - Open to all

at studio Fleur d’Asphalte, 6847 St-Hubert (metro Jean-Talon)

Contact improvisation is a physical conversation in almost
perpetual motion. It’s "child’s play" that lets you rediscover
your basic link to gravity and space. It’s a form of dance in
which you develop presence with yourself and the other as
100% intuitive, incarnate beings.

2. Sculpting the Unknown

Suspension and Taking Flight

Contact Improvisation Workshops on a Tatami

Intermediate/advanced group

Next workshop scheduled in December, more info very soon

These workshops are intended for contactors with
substantial experience who wish to refine their skills.

At the magnificent Shoshin Aikido Montreal Dojo

  • 5445 av. de Gaspé, #208 (Laurier metro)

The tatami is a perfect tool for practicing CI. It allows us
to take risks, to come to terms with rebounding, and to
augment suspension. In these workshops, we will explore
how to take flight into each other in order to become
fluent, free sculptors of space and present time.

A voyage of initiation into the heart of the subconscious,

our interior richness. A blind and silent introspection into
the world of impulse. A window open on to the unknown.

What’s contact danse?

An invitation to let go in a haven of peace. Dancing, experience the laws of gravity, momentum and balance, that is the contact improvisation.
