WHAT IS Contact Improvisation?

In connection with yourself and ‘the other’, listening to you own body, feelings and borders, we will discover in a playful way a free dance-forme in which the interaction with the other is the source of inspiration for the dance. You can dance with another person, but also with yourself, your own body, your emotions, the floor that carries you, the air that surrounds you or any other object of your interest.

It’s not about how beautiful or ‘dancy’ your dance looks. It’s about the fun and the exploration of the movement, and your playful and authentic reaction on what surrounds you.

Underneath you can find some YouTube video’s to get an impression.

Or check the page with ci excercises to see video’s of all kinds of techniques that are being used in contact improvisation.
