CI Fun-damentals

In this Class we will create terminology which will shine a light on some useful tools used in the movement language of CI. Using these tools we will practice simple and satisfying ways to have engaging, interesting, and dynamic dancing.

here are some of the elements we will work with:

* better understanding of how to engage our mass and weight with our partner in a way that can keep on traveling.

* gaining sensitivity with different qualities of touch.

* practicing our own creative interest through exploring what solo dancing can mean for us.
