Rick Nodine

Solo forms and Contact Improvisation

This session will be based in Contact Improvisation. Somatic images and solo patterns will underpin the warm-up. Investigating and challenging your solo dancing will be your preparation for meeting others in Contact dances. Connecting deeply with others will lead you back to self awareness. Technical challenges and conceptual strategies will be offered to support you in learning something new.
