Contact Improvisation – The Basics

November 1 - November 29

THU 6-8pm 

MR@Gibney 280 Broadway

Contact Improvisation, initiated by dancer Steve Paxton in 1972, is a partnering dance form that plays with the physics between bodies and gravity. Skills such as rolling, releasing, giving and supporting weight, expanding range of spatial concentration, lifting, catching and falling all help one move with and through gravity, share weight in motion, and use momentum and flow in physical contact. These weekly classes, open to people of all levels of movement experience, are informed by the individual artist faculty.

See the full calendar for up to date class listings. Classes are taught by rotating faculty.
