Catherine Lessard

Catherine Lessard
In my early twenties, I traveled in Europe and America, finding opportunities to train myself in Contact Improvisation, body expression and improvised dancing with international coaches: Nancy Stark-Smith, Kirstie Simpson, Patricia Kuypers, Franck Beaubois, K-J. Holmes… Native from Montreal, I lived in France for several years proposing workshops and intensive classes of CI for dancers, sports and martial arts adepts, and also for non-dancing/non-moving people.

Usually, my classes are explorations of human body’s expression in terms of breathing, self consciousness, self confidence, cellular awareness, non-judgement, slack-out and movement qualities.

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.
