An introduction to the fundamentals of contact improvisation, followed by an open “jam.” Beginners are always very welcome. The jam provides an opportunity to learn by dancing with other more advanced dancers and is an integral part of the practice of CI as a community. Please dress as you would for a yoga or modern dance class. Layers work well. Kneepads are recommended, but not required. This is a donation-based gathering ($5.00 per class is suggested) sponsored by heartsopening and is open to the entire community.
