6pm to 7:30pm

The 418 Project

Explore and learn Contact Improvisation using a delightful array of props, tools, and toys. This one-of-a-kind class series gives you the opportunity to practice and test out the principles of Contact Improvisation (its inherent movements, techniques, and awarenesses) with very special, very helpful "teachers". Physioballs, foam rollers, a balance staff, elastic bands, crutches, sandbags, yoga swings, a hammock, bungee harnesses, and even an overstuffed couch!

We will then dance with each other to explore how what we learn from the objects transfers into our movement with human bodies.

This 8 class series is only offered once a year so be sure to be there if you want to play and learn with an awesome group of people.

 

All levels of experience are welcome. You can choose your engagement level at anytime or totally refuse a particular prop or activity. You are always at choice in any of my classes!

IMPORTANT: Please do not wear jeans or things with buttons, buckles, or anything pointy or sharp. Also no watches or jewelry please. Wear comfortable, stretchable clothing you can move in. Bring both a long sleeve and a short sleeve shirt if possible. A water bottle as well, if you like.

May 5 - Jun 23

Flight School 101

May 5 - Jun 23

Tuesday Nights

6pm to 7:30pm

The 418 Project

"Flying" is one of Contact Improv's greatest joys. Lifting and being lifted, floating with the support of a partner, a sudden rise and fall in the dynamic exchange of weight. An impulsive leap and a creative catch or deflection...all these things are available to us if we are willing to take a few risks AND learn some basics principles. In this way (along with some effective verbal and non-verbal communication techniques) we are able to increase safety, heighten enjoyment, and expand our sense of possibility.

You will learn:

  • specific verbal and non-verbal "flight cues"

  • pathways and strategies for falling/landing

  • effective methods for transferring weight

  • low level vs. "high-in-the-sky" flying

  • multi-axis core connection and inversion

  • plus many more helpful hints and approaches for ease and exhilaration

This 8 class series is only offered once a year so be sure to be there if you've been yearning to develop and grow in this area.

 

All levels of experience are welcome with some prior instruction in CI required. You can choose your engagement level at anytime or totally refuse a particular activity. You are always at choice in any of my classes!

IMPORTANT: Please do not wear jeans or things with buttons, buckles, or anything pointy or sharp. Also no watches or jewelry please. Wear comfortable, stretchable clothing you can move in. Bring both a long sleeve and a short sleeve shirt if possible. A water bottle as well, if you like.
