Contact Improvisation Class
"Contact Improvisation is a study of movement through awareness, and a study of awareness through movement"
"...it's about watching your reflexes at work" (Steve Paxton)
Teacher 12. July: Fanny Huber
Improvisation in Contact
In this class we will focus on the elements of improvisation in our solo dance and in contact. To improvise, we practice openness, spontaneity and indulge in the playfulness of the dance. We will try rejecting our plans, responding to the unpredictable, and bringing our attention into the here and now over and over again. The course prepares you for the jam that follows and is suitable for all levels.
Fanny Huber discovered her passion for dance (ballet and modern dance) when she was 11 years old. In the last 10 years she has immersed herself extensively in contact improvisation and has also trained in further areas of improvisation (insant composition, vocal and clown improvisation) and contemporary dance. Her work is influenced by Nancy Stark Smith, Jörg Hassmann, Lilo Stahl, Katie Duck, Andrew Morrish und Zack Bernstein. Since 2013 she has been involved in the Contact Improvisation scene, teaching classes and organizing jams in Zurich, Bern, and Eastern Switzerland.
