About the event

What goes through your mind when you see a couple of dancers moving through space completely backward?

In contact improv, we love falling back just as much as we love moving forward. 

For this San Jose CI Workshop, contact improv expert Brandon Stewart will show us how to open up to newer pathways through the epic world of backspace. 

This will allow you to distribute your weight more confidently and consistently in any situation, thus generating higher levels of momentum in your dance, creating more ease, and increasing your range as a dynamic, fluid dancer!

We will then transition into a CI Jam where we will apply what we have learned.

This class is for ALL levels, but intermediate contacters are encouraged to attend 🙂
