We envision an explicitly queer space where folks of all gender identities, race, age, abilities and bodies can feel comfortable, safe and seen, while enjoying the practice of contact improvisation
We believe in diversity of expression, playfulness, compassion, clarity, understanding, radical softness, and the transformational power of connection through dance and touch.
Join us if you resonate with this and if you'd like to be part of a movement-based queer community - this is an opportunity to settle down in your own body finding your own pathways and expression - tuning into your own rhythm and queerness
*queer / queering: odd, eccentric, unconventional, to question, to puzzle, to disrupt, to reorientate, consider from a new angle.
**this is a contact improvisation event, therefore touching and weight sharing exercises will be suggested - you are still welcomed in the space if you don't wish to be touched and we encourage you to do what feels best for you.
In this class/jam we will take time to observe the body while yielding (to itself, others and the earth). To yield is to come into an active relationship with something, anything that we choose.
how can yielding support active listening in the dance?
how can active listening allow for (inter)personal clarity?
