Sensuality in Contact Improvisation
Contact Improvisation is a contemporary dance form based on physical sensation and listening through the body. In this workshop participants will be invited to explore different types of touch, shared weight, practice leading and following, releasing, connecting with our centre, following our physical intuition, surfing the unfolding dance and inviting sensuality. What is the difference between sexuality and sensuality? Do they feel different? Where do they meet? This will be an experiential workshop conducted in a safe environment. Expanding our consciousness, awareness and the senses will inspire and nourish the dance opening us up to a richer and more fully experienced life.
