Chemistry in Motion™—Communicadance™
Free for first-timers! Some call it art wrestling. Some call it ballroom yoga. Whatever you call it, the dance of contact improv is a beautifully joyful practice for exercise, pleasure, creativity, playfulness, and connection. Upcoming class #3 in a 12-class series. Join us for the full series to explore the repertoire of skills in the dance of contact improv and related interpersonal communication. For the full listing of skills, click here: Note: for best effect, use a laptop or desktop computer; second best is a tablet; although all the info is also available on a phone screen. If you're new to this form of dance, search out the videos on YouTube with "contact improv." Come on your own, come with a partner, or come with a bunch of friends. Sign up for the series of remaining classes at the $8/class price or see other ticket options at $12 to $15, depending on when you purchase. Free for first-timers, who have never been to a dance class led by Alex. While at the class, you can also pay for the next class for $10 cash.

Best to arrive at your leisure during the warm-up time or before 3:15 so we're all on the same page. Wear clothes suitable for yoga or dancercise. Knee pads are a useful option. Come refreshed. May want to bring a towel and change of shirt. We’ll be exercising! Best to avoid wearing perfume or scents, for the comfort of others. Remember your water bottle!
