The event creator says
We welcome community members at all levels of experience with movement to come on by and warm up with the class that is lighting Dallas on fire!

WHO WE ARE: A group of fun, playful, down-to-earth non-professional moving bodies interested in getting better at using physical contact in dance to discover new possibilities for expression. Sound interesting? Then come on over and give us a try!

WHAT WE DO: Contact Improvisation (CI) is a way to connect with others physically and emotionally, and (mostly) non-verbally! It's a dance practice in which two (or more) people share a moving point of connection, which often leads to sharing a common center of gravity, moving in and out of the ground, up and around in air, feeling limitless in space and time, with unlimited possibilities for FUN!!! Think… Romper Room for the Soul! And SO MUCH MORE!!

5:30-6:30pm Guided Class ($15 suggested donation)
6:30-7pm Mingle and cool down
7:00-7:30pm Non-Guided Movement Jam (free)

Note: All classes adaptable to your physical ability and skill level. All levels welcomed!

Contact improvisation is a playful outlet for our animal bodies, a deep meditation, a moving art form, a community builder, and a chance to push your edges of comfort and trust. Join us Friday January 29th to find out what it is for you!

“Contact improv has given me more confidence as a man and as a dancer. I have learned how to provide stable support for my dance partners, and to trust them to hold my weight too. I am learning to move from my body and shut off my mind”. - Joshua Montross

"I am addicted to doing this every week! Every dance I do, when I'm finished I feel SO DEEPLY inspired, invigorated, relaxed, enthusiastic about life, and NEW! And I can take it back into my daily life.” – Courtney Clay
