The Contact Improvisation Class and Jam takes place EVERY TUESDAY year-round at CounterPULSE. The class is sequential, but drop-ins are encouraged. The best learning experience comes from trying out the styles of at least 3 of our monthly teachers. CI deepens your flexibility, kinesthetic awareness, and choices for contemporary partnering. Explore the discipline and play of this dance form with both class study and jam practice. The jam is a no-music (quiet) jam. We recommend taking class before attending your first jam.
Ralf Jaroschinski’s July Class: The Interface between Action and Reaction
In the beginning of the classes, we’ll focus on our center and awareness: We will look for the true, internal source and the authentic, external expression of our own dance. We will then investigate attentively the texture of our connection(s) with our partner(s) through listening to their and again our actions and reactions during the ongoing dances. We will be able to fully enjoy participating in the dance, because our and our partners’ contributions to it will be generous and full-hearted, since they are at all times nurtured from within. And, the resulting dances will feel inexhaustible, deeply connected, original and very satisfying.
