Contact Improv Class
The Rudolf Rocker Cultural Centre, 3rd floor, 91 Albert St., Winnipeg, Manitoba , Canada

In this class you learn tools to help facilitate this improvised contact dance.
- Structured conceptual exercises
- We isolate movements and situations that occure in improvises and break them down, talk about them, and work on them
- Time is given at the end of the class for a jam/round robin which offers the chance for people to explore the dance fully.
