Contact Improvisation Fundamentals

Early Bird Discount until August 15!

Schedule Saturday, September 2nd | 10:00am – 5pm

Doors open at 9:30am

Morning Session: 10am – 1:00pm

We will spend the first half of the day tuning to the subtleties of the moving body, sensation as nonverbal communication and introducing the nervous system to disorientation. Partnering exercises will practice negotiating weight and modulating muscle tone which are two important aspects of moving with another body.

Lunch/ Snack Break: 1:00 – 2:00pm

Please bring food and drink. Water, tea and light snacks will be available.

Afternoon Session: 2:00 – 5:00pm

During the second session we will have time to experiment with weight sharing techniques that include the basic mechanics of falling and flying. We will also practice techniques for initiating and recovering from lifts and falls – how to keep a dance going and how stay safe while we challenge ourselves.



The workshop will be held at The Barn, located at 130 Jacob Street in Seekonk, MA. Just 10 minutes outside of Providence. The Barn is a beautiful studio with heated wood floors overlooking 25 acres of beautiful farmland. There is parking in the driveway right next to the dance space.


This Intensive is taught by Stephanie Turner contact improvisation and contemporary choreographer and teacher based in Brooklyn, CT.
