In this class, we will start with a short Feldenkrais class to explore and clarify the function of the spiral, as powerful and fundamental principle of human movement. We will experience how the spiral can support us to find trust, clarity and effortlessness in our Contact dance.

About our CI sessions

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 practising 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 practising CI classes would vary. All classes are led by experienced teachers from inside and around the region.

  • Classes are led by an experienced CI teacher for 1.5 hours and are followed by a 1-hour jam session. (the jams are unguided to allow time to play around with ideas taught during the class )
  • Jams start with a 30 minute guided warm-up leading to a 2 hours unguided jam. This session is designed to allow time for free exploration of the CI practice.

Both sessions are open to all levels and no previous experience is required.
