What IS contact staff???
Contact Staff is the manipulation of a staff without gripping it with your hands. The staff moves fluidly across your body making use of pivot points and rolls while staying in perfect balance. The end result looks effortless and magical!
Contact staff promotes hand-eye coordination, increased self-confidence, body awareness, flexibility, and dexterity.
