2 Contact Improvisation Intensives

with Chris Aiken, Ray Chung and Andrew Harwood

For the last two years we have been blessed with these three legends co-teaching a full week luxurious practice which was a great success. We all enjoyed it, learned from it, and decided to do it again.

Would you like to deepen your practice?

Contact Improvisation invites a diverse, open-minded community where creative expression knows no bounds. It celebrates a fusion of movement, offering a space for boundless exploration and connection. While some thrive in its fluid, celebratory nature, others are drawn to delve deeper, seeking profound meaning and subtlty in connection. If you resonate with this quest for depth, you're in the right place. Let's explore together.
