Contact Improvisation Training

Tools & Toys for all levels - Systematic, Somatic, Playful

In this workshop we will work technically and systematically on so called „pathways“ (CI vocabulary), to experience and understand the underlying principles of this wonderful dance form.

Furthermore we will play with elements from Body-Mind Centering and developmental movement to (re-)discover natural and organic movement qualities, and to find efficient body tone modulation and effortlessness, softness and strength for moving with shared weight.  

With different dance scores we create spaces and atmospheres in which technique, playfulness and improvisation can melt into truely multidimensional experiences of falling, flying and momentum. 

 The systematic approach of this workshop is based on the curriculum of the Contact Improvisation Training Berlin (www.dancecontact.de).
