How to not K*ll yourself doing 1970's Contact


Fri Mar 24 2023 at 08:00 pm


Studio 239 Amsterdam | Amsterdam, NH

This workshop will prepare your body for an ALIVE dance.
IN the early days dancers threw themselves at each other, we will build trust and resilience in the group to build these wild contact situations. We will go directly to the REFLEXES - bringing up your RESPONSE - Tone - to be 3 dimensionally available and ready for the dance to unfold in unpredictable ways, while having soft resilience.
We will bring in the rebound of the fascia and the fullness of the organs through the Body-Mind Centering approach - and learn to frolic like toddlers (Developmental Movement).

How can you build a great dance relationship - even in just one dance in a Jam?
Christine will share her method of showing up fully for the next moment and create the dances that excite or deeply involve you, and be able to sink into those moments where you become carried by the dance.
Let’s break out of the notion that dances are tasks, WORK, where we are constantly struggling to do what we think our partner wants or do more, better, higher. How can we catch the ride?

About Christine:
Christine Cole found CI in Freiburg in 1981, and keeps this practice and research to today. She became a teacher of BMC, teacher of CI and lived in Western Massachusetts, where both Bonnie Bainbridge-Cohen and Nancy Stark Smith resided, therefore having access to both leaders in their field and curated a festival where they spoke about their history, their work and their connection.
She runs SomaticBODY trainings in Europe, Israel and the USA and teaches Somatics using CI - all this time, as a versatil, alive, movement technique that is based on relating through movement, momentum, timing. She is concerned about Somatics as being understood as a nice, sensing, calming practice, but believes that Somatics must not be stripped of action and allow for ALL human ways of being in the world to be expressed and supported.
