Stéphanie propose gentle floor work to warm up, to awaken the experience of your body and its personality. We’ll be focusing particularly on awareness of our movement in relation to dynamic forces (gravity, momentum, inertia), in conjunction with our imagination to dance more freely with one or more partners.

Inspiring ourselves from the chosen theme, and with specific exercises, we will gradually integrate our study into an improvised, joyful play for the pleasure of dancing.

Fundamental Principles of Contact Improvisation:
 Listening through touch and kinesthetic understanding
 Exploration of the point of contact between two moving bodies
 Exploring our kinesphere
 The games of weight-sharing and counter-balance
 Dancing with a shared central axis
 Exploring fluid pathways between the ground and the air

Dynamic? Energetic? The Association can’t progress without a solid group of volunteers. The committees need YOU!

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.
