Nia for Life
West Concord, MA
We develop skills in contact improvisation while finding the freedom in the form. Support, alignment, leading/following, upside down work, lightness, moving without manipulation, vision exploration, sound, solo, duet, trios, and different improvisational scores are some of our investigations. We span the subtle and the large. The objectives are learning through the movement, letting the body live in its natural state, and of course, fun!
