Welcome to the next CI Class and Jam!

at the Bluecoat Performance Space, School Lane, Liverpool, L1 3BX   www.thebluecoat.org.uk

Class: 11am -12.30pm 

Jam:   1.30pm – 3.30pm

Cost:  Class £6/4 Jam £4/2.  Class and Jam £8/5

These sessions are open and designed for people interested in movement and improvisation either as beginners or those with more experience.

We have designed an hour’s lunch break between the class and the jam.  If you intend to come only for the afternoon Jam it would be advisable to arrive a little earlier to warm up

The Class will be taught by experienced Contact Improvisers who will offer skills for moving safely and efficiently, finding fluidity, energy and strength whilst dancing alone or with a partner.

The Jam offers opportunities to expand the dance in a more ‘open’ situation where the focus is on the dancing as opposed to the teaching. There will be a led introduction and ending to the Jam.  Live music may be an additional part of these sessions.

Contact Improvisation, invented by Steve Paxton and others in 1972, is essentially a duet dance form, sometimes referred to as an art/sport. It uses the physical laws of motion (weight, inertia, momentum and gravity) to explore the relationship between the dancers covering a spectrum of high energy and stillness and everything in between.
