Contact improvisation- Beginners
Teacher: Pil Josefine Nielsen, Actress and mover also part of the team teaching "Movementlab"

We will be working with the basics of contact improv, how to stay connected to yourself, the other, how to listen and breathing while moving together.

What is contact Improvisation:
Contact Improvisation is a partner dance form based on the physical principles of touch, momentum, shared weight, and most quintessentially - following a shared point of contact. The form was founded in 1972 by Steve Paxton. Integrating his background as a modern dancer and his studies in the martial art form Aikido, Steve developed Contact Improv through explorations with his students and colleagues at the time. This dance practice explores the skills of falling, rolling, counterbalance, lifting using minimal effort, how to make ourselves light when being lifted, centering and breathing techniques, and responsiveness to our partners and surroundings.
