In this class I will share my investigation around some event that keep my mind moving and my body available while I dance C.I. We will look at the “ground reaction” as bio-mechanic phenomenon.
The architecture of the bones direct the weight downwards with the resistance of the floor replying with an upward supportive force, called ground reaction. To be able to receive this force back and let it travel along the body structure it’s one of the key of joy and grace in dancing.
We will play with some primitive patterns and see how they can nourish our sensory-motor skills and communication through the Contact improvisation alphabet.
