Contact Improv – Dance and Movement Workshop
Contact Improv is a playful movement improvisation that is explored in contact with others. It involves the exploration of one’s body in relationship to others by using the fundamentals of sharing weight, touch, and movement awareness. Besides being fun and good exercise it also makes your brain release the hormone oxytocin which gives your mood a boost!
No experience is needed, just a curious mind 🙂
Since this workshop includes touch we will pay special attention to communication and consent during the various exercises to make sure that everyone feels safe and comfortable.

○ Warm up our muscles
○ Some playful danceante exercises around connecting with others through movement such as mirroring movements.
