"Dance." Movement. Art-Sport.
Contact Improvisation (often called Contact Improv or sometimes simply CI) is an art form, a practice, generally using a point of contact between two people as a starting point. It can be done solo, with a partner, as a trio or with more.
For me it is moving meditation, a chance to clear your mind as you become intimately attuned to your body, to gravity, momentum, the floor and of course, your partner.
Join us for a class and open jams at Wasteland Studios, 700 Main St. (6th floor).

Contact Improv is more of a personal and collective practice than an artistic medium–but it makes great content for performances and can be awfully fun to watch.
