Bali Spirit Festival - Contact & Axis Syllabus

Ubud, Bali

March 24-31, 2019

In this fun and dynamic workshop, we will practice moving on our own and in connection with each other. We will use principles of the Axis Syllabus throughout. Contact Improvisation is a dance of connection that shows us how we are as relational beings. It is an investigation into an embodied self, contacting and responding to other beings. This improvised dance form encourages us to be precisely in the present moment and engenders empowered participation in the discovery of relatedness. It is the practice of connecting with our environment and each other as we respond with movement in a way that aligns with the inner self.
