I'm so excited to be offering Melting Point, which I describe as a merging of Contact Improvisation, Ecstatic dance and Live Music.
This 'class' is mostly a held space in which to explore 'flow' through the language of dance and touch, underpinned by 90 minutes of lovingly selected music with selections of live piano sprinkled in.
If you've been feeling confronted by the intimacy of Contact Improv, or have been wanting to drop the self-judgement when dancing with more experienced dancers, this night could really help you overcome these hurdles.
You don’t need any Contact ‘moves’ or prior experience to participate, just bring yourself, willing to enter into the flow of touch and movement.
Everyone is welcome, so please invite those you think might like it.
If you’d like to find out more about Contact Improvisation, this video is a great introduction to some basics: @ [NjQyMTgzOTU5MjA4MTA3Omh0dHBcYS8vd3d3LnlvdXR1YmUuY29tL3dhdGNoP3Y9amNyYklkWTNIWmM6Og==:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcrbIdY3HZc]
Experienced Contacters: you’ll find this practice beautifully complements your own CI practice as the music guides you deeper into flow, improvisation and connection.
About me: I'm a trained musician and committed dancer with over 6 years ecstatic dance experience. I've been inspired to create a musically led Contact Improv Jam and I'm excited to bring this practice to Melbourne.
