What is Contact Improvisation?

Contact Improvisation is a playful form of dance or movement, based on physical contact between two (or more) people. Together you will start an endless journey of kinaesthetic possibilities of two bodies. The adventure of meeting each other in movement has begun. During and after dancing you will feel strong, relaxed, centred, connected, calm...
A delicious experience! In a free (non-guided) setting Contact Improvisation meetings are called "jams" in which you can participate or watch as you choose. The Jam gives the possibility to spontaneously explore physical forms and ideas. You don't need to be experienced, as other dancers take you along. You can also learn a lot through watching.

Join the workshop with experienced teachers, designed for all levels, as an introduction, warm up and for new inspiration.

Afterwards open Jam with live music!
... ending with a communal potluck dinner.

Jump in and dance, or watch, as you like.

Short course

Are you someone with little or no experience with Contact Improvisation? Or do you know someone who you'd like to take to the jam, and who could use a short introduction? Then you are most welcome to this beginners' course! You will dance 3 Sunday afternoons with other beginners and a teacher who will make you feel comfortable with the basic elements of Contact Improvisation. The course can be given if we have at least eight participants. If you'd like to join, please let us know with an email to info@contactzone.nl.

Currently, we haven't set a date but we'll start a course as soon as enough people are interested.

You'd need to register for this course beforehand.
