Former AXIS Dancer Sebastian Grubb will lead workshop participants and community members in two jams during our Summer Intensive from 5:30-7:30 pm.
This Jam is an open, informal space to which dancers of all types and backgrounds are invited to explore their bodies in a kinesthetic relationship to other bodies. The jam will begin with a brief intro. Contact Improvisation is a physical investigation into gravity, momentum, and weight sharing solo or between two or more bodies. Dancers move with constant attentiveness to their own bodies, impulses, and trajectories, while listening and responding authentically to their partners. The form encourages mindful awareness and mutual exchange. For beginners through advanced movers.
