Falling with Grace - Contact Improv w/ Sphynx Church (Montreal)
Taking the movement language from Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, we will begin to examine different ways of moving on the floor and with dance partners, using inversions and pathways. We will also explore becoming comfortable falling slowly and safely so we feel liberated to explore risk while dancing.
