Team taught by Eric Nordstrom and Luke Gutgsell
In this contemporary partnering and improvisation class for dancers of all levels, we will ask, "What can we discover within the point of physical contact?" In the process, we will explore giving and receiving, leading and following and supporting and surrendering. We will stretch our edges and deepen our capacity to fall, feel and fly. This class will feature rich and immersive sonic landscapes composed on the spot by musical wiz kid, Ben Martens.
October 18th 10:00-12:00 // $12 drop-in
