Project Description

CONTACT IMPROVISATION FOR KIDS (7-11 Y OLD)

Contact is about physicality and the relationship with the floor, about rolling, jumping, running, controlled falling, changing levels and the relationship with others. Inclusion of all senses in the process of generating the movements is also a focus. Improvisation refers to engaging the speed of directing attention to what is happening in real time, creating compositions of spontaneous movements. In this class we’ll develop both motor skills and mental attitudes of focusing on what we do. Trusting our own capabilities to create the movements and compositions that we want to create is also part of the work..

Contact Improvisation involves improving motor skills and self-confidence. Through movement and physical contact, children develop a new form of communication and knowledge of their own body and creative possibilities.
