About the event

Aloha Dance Family,

I am thrilled to announce a Juicy June Contact Improvisation workshop here in Puna.   Early Bird until May 1st!

HERE is the FB event page:  Please check going or interested to support the word getting out!

Join my Puna Contact Improvisation telegram channel to stay updated:

In this 4 week committed container we will level UP your skills on how to work with the necessary ingredients that are a prerequisite for having fun in Contact Improvisation: LISTENING, TRUST and FULL WEIGHT SHARING!

The benefits of a closed container are many. We deepen our trust of ourselves and each other and our understanding of the art form begins to bloom into our being, into our dancing and into our life.

3-6pm All Friday's in June: 3, 10, 17, 24

Say YES to this opportunity to be a part of a community where we can upack the questions and insecurities that naturally arise when we are navigating the potent art sport of Contact Improvisation.

(FYI: there will be no drop in contact class in May or June. I am off island in May.)

Each class will focus on: * restorative contact practices to support your nervous system to establish a baseline in homeostasis, and parasympathetic reset. * creating a solid somatic foundation of the principles of Contact Improvisation. * developing the needed strength and understanding of your own architecture so you can safely hold others' weight. * learning to TRUST yourself to GIVE your FULL Weight to your partner. * working with the power of momentum to adjust your sails and fly into risk taking and ENJOY the WILD RIDE.

This workshop will leave you feeling confident, massaged, met, touched, curious, alive, playful, contemplative, strengthened and energized!

*$200 Investment*

*no one turned away for lack of funds*

Contact Improvisation is a martial art, an awareness training, and an improvisational movement form that guides its participants to gain somatic intelligence and deep listening skills while having a lot of FUN!

 In its most basic form, CI is a partner dance form based on the physical principles of touch, momentum, and following a shared point of contact to investigate and develop a truthful relationship with being present and attuned.
