*Class description: *This is a class that focuses on perception and dancing
in contact with another person or the environment using shared weight,
momentum and gravity. From warm-up to open movement we will explore
partnering, dancing closely, touching, supporting and lifting.  We may
delve into such skills as rolling, falling, and sharing weight through easy
compression and counter balance and/or break down and explore the
techniques of sloughing, rolling points, bodysurfing and posts. Expect to
use the whole body as a surface for encounters with the floor, another
human, and the world around you. The Class will dedicate ample time to open
movement improvisations and explorations.

techniques, to yoga, contact improvisation and ballet. Curt performed with
the collaborative improv group ‘Vitamin C’ in NYC where he taught CI
regularly at Movement Research.  He toured internationally with David
Dorfman Dance from 1990 to 2002, while creating over 15 original roles,
