Intro to Contact Dance with River Ritcey
Contact Improvisation (CI) is a contemporary dance form which uses points of contact as a foundation for the exploration of movement. It is a unique form of partner dance in which no one person is leading; the dance is formed through a balanced union between listening to your partner & listening to your own creative intuition.This workshop is for all levels and will offer an introduction to the fundamentals of Contact Dance as well as discuss key concepts for those with a more advanced understanding of Contact. Come and experience the joy of being in body, the joy of being present and being lost – the joy of co-creation through dance. This workshop is accessible to everyone – complete beginners and even those that may be concerned about physical limitations. Come and experience the joy of being in body, the joy of being present and being lost – the joy of co-creation through dance.
River Ritcey hails from Vancouver, BC where she spends her days creating community, chasing bugs, and teaching Contact Dance Workshops.
