Contact Improvisation is a form of dance based on spontaneous movement and physical contact. The exploration of a freely improvised movement nourished by the contact between two or more dancers is central to this proposition. The practice-created environment provides a safe space to engage in physical dialogues, while playing with elements such as gravity, balance-imbalance, staves, falling.
Learning and practicing Contact Improvisation has many positive physical and psychological effects such as improving body awareness, deepening self-awareness, improving self-confidence and confidence in the unknown, developing abilities in creative solutions, increasing physical energy and relaxing the body.
It is a form of very playful dance that associates with the pleasure of the movement a work on the bodily perception, on the communication and the choreographic dialogue between several participants, on the confidence in oneself and in the other and on the discovery and the mastery of the limits of the own comfort zone.
Contact Improvisation is a form of dance that is part of the styles and techniques of contemporary dance. Developed in the United States in the 1970s by a group of avant-garde dancers, it is one of the best-known and most characteristic forms of postmodern dance.
