Wednesday CI course by Otto
Sunday Contact Improv Jam Sessions



Otto will teach a Contact Improvisation course, using his background in contact improvisation, contemporary dance/floorwork, Gaga dance, acrobatics, breathwork and meditation.  Lifts, weight sharing, being aware of your moving body and that of your partner, rolling point of contact, rolling on the floor and up in the air! The class is open for beginners to advanced dancers.

Dates: March 22, 29 and April 5 & 12 (next course will start in April – email me to get informed as soon as possible)
Time: 16.30-18.30
Place: EdanZ, studio 3 – Oldenbarneveltlaan 6, Groningen

The class is open for beginners to advanced dancers. The classes will be given as short courses of 4 weeks, each course with a different theme. This will give us the opportunity to dive deeper into the material with the same group of people for (at least) 4 weeks. We can repeat excercises and incorporate it into free dance so it gets into our body. 

Because we have two hours per week, there will be a lot of time to integrate everything into your own dance, to let everything go and enjoy the rich world of contact improvisation.

Minimum of 8 people before the course can start (max. 16 people), so ask friends/family/total strangers to join you!

Price: 50 euro for 4 classes of 2 hours. Sign up by sending an e-mail to or use the contact form.

If you cannot join the whole course or want to try it out, email me for options.

If you want to join but finance is an issue, also send me an email, maybe we can work it out.


NEXT JAM: Sunday the 26th of March 2023 (usually once to twice a month – send an email to get the dates as soon as possible)
TIME: 2-4pm
WHERE: EdanZ – Van Oldenbarneveltlaan 6, Groningen, studio 10 (most of the time)

Come join us for a playful dance jam! Let’s explore movement in relation to others, the floor, and the space. Each session will start with a guided warm-up in which we tune in with the basic principles of CI; sharing weight, touch and body awareness. Every Body is welcome, no matter how much experience you have.

The warm-up will be done by one of the organizers: Anneroos, Jorien & Otto.

– Clothes that are easy to dance and move in
– Take off things like bracelets, necklaces, belts with hard (metal) points, because you can hurt yourself or others with it if you roll over someone
– A bottle of water is handy; there will be water/tea but maybe you want a bit more

PRICE: 7,80 euro (low income/student) – 9,75 euro (normal price), or use your old ‘strippenkaart’ from EdanZ.

Payment can be done upfront at the EdanZ website. Or at the door with a QR-code. If that’s a difficulty for you, please send us an email


No new workshops planned at this moment.
