Angela says:

” I can not say I teach Contact. I share Contact Improvisation, I share my self, I share what my teachers taught me, my dance.... tea and water :-) I think that contact as communication needs conditions to leave. I like when my friends come to me to dance and talk, and have endless time and space to talk about love. The best joy for me is to create space for people to come together and discover meanings and sense of the dance and life.”
