Our contact improvisation group organises classes, open jams and workshops which are open to all bodies, no matter of experience.

Contact improvisation is an open-ended exploration of two or more bodies moving while sharing physical contact. By offering a regular space for learning and practicing the form we aim to gather and share the evolving practice of contact improvisation and its practitioners.

As there are different approaches to learning and practicing, our CI classes vary. All classes are led by experienced teachers from inside and around the region.

“I can’t say how much professional class by the network is such a vital source for me as a practitioner and teacher here locally. There really isn’t anything else of this sort in the area. I even travel a good 50 miles to make it. There are times where timetabling hasn’t allowed me to attend, but for me this class is like an elixir for life! Long may it reign and bring not only a connection for local artists, but also a breeding ground for developing practitioners alike.”
