Sarah Gavina Campus: Contact Improvisation

Contact improvisation is a multi-dimensional dance form using the energies of gravity, momentum and weight sharing to connect with others. This workshop explores the art of authentically connecting in contact with our dancing partners. We will open curiosity and play to guide into nourishing ways to enter and cultivate our dances. Our fluid bodies will awaken as we dive deep into embodied presence. Using partner, group, and individual exercises, we will awaken our sensory delight, awareness and creativity in contact. Beginner's encouraged. All welcome!

Sarah is a dancer, yoga teacher and performer. She draws on improvisation, somatic practice, sound and breath awareness to create environments which support conscious touch and genuine connection in dance. She has danced contact improvisation since 1996 with many diverse bodies.
