About the event

The Joy of Contact

This 8 week class series is a playful, curious, and focused exploration of Contact Improvisation (CI) as interpreted and facilitated by Daniel Mollner. You will be supported in exploring dynamic weight exchange, going in and out of connection, and how to truly enjoy this ever-evolving movement-based inquiry on your own terms. Open to all levels of experience. I have been teaching this formless "form" for over 20 years and I'm a passionate, professional movement educator and community builder.

All participants commit to attending at least 6 of the 8 classes in the series (sorry, no drop-ins).

Contact Improvisation is an embodied exploration that can be done solo or with others. It explores movement, stillness, going in and out of touch, and shared weight shifting/exchange from barely perceptible to full body. It's up to each individual. You are always at choice! Follow your curiosity and pleasure while listening to and respecting the body-based cues (or verbal requests) of others. Please take 100% responsibility for your experience and your own health and safety.

Bring a water bottle and wear comfortable clothing that you can move in. Please no jeans, belt buckles, wrist watches, bracelets, or other jewelry that can snag or poke. This is a consent-based space. Every BODY is unique. All are welcome, especially People of Color, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Same-Gender Loving People, seniors, and neurodiverse. Whatever your shape, size, age, or ability you are welcome and wanted here!
