We are back from a very special Earthdance Contact Improvisation New Years retreat in Western Mass and we have LOTS to share! We are dancing in 2019 with intention, tenderness, and vigor and our contact improvisation class + jam will continue EVERY Wednesday from 7 to 9pm at Wilkins School and Community Center in Regent Square! All are invited to experience the art of contact improvisation, which combines the freedom and exploration of modern dance with the social and physical energy of social dance. Never heard of it? That's ok, all levels of experience and body types are welcome to practice, explore, and enjoy!! Each week we'll start by warming up and tuning in and then move into experimenting with contact fundamentals, such as: rolling, pouring weight, tuning in to your dance partner, and everyone's favorite - falling! After the exercises, we'll put our new skills into practice as we flow into a more open and less structured dance time, which we call the "Jam". Interested? Feel free to reach out to this group for more information, or email us at [masked] (To cover the cost of using the space, we suggest a $5-10 donation from participants, but don't allow a lack of funds to dissuade your presence) Please invite your friends, and see you on the floor! <3
