It is a beautiful way of relating, which asks and builds our intelligent response to the forces and energies at play. Regular practice will attune the awareness of the body by solo exercises and partner-work. it can foster a sense of connection to yourself and your surrounding, as one and another meet in the dance.
It is also enjoyable by movers of all kinds—professionally trained dancers, recreational movers, athletes, disabled dancers, old, young. Dancers apply for their work with CI to choreography, to dance training, to working with children, seniors, disabled populations, therapy, visual art, music, education, environmental work, and social activism. Many do it just for pleasure and personal development. Contact Improvisation's influence seen throughout modern and postmodern dance choreography, performance, and dance training worldwide, especially in relationship to partnering and use of weight. We want to develop and spread to new cities, countries, types of dancers, and areas of application. The work embraces those new to the form as well as those who have devoted to its study and practice for decades.
