Emotional Contact 55+
Let your heart be touched
Emotional Contact consists of a soft and attentive form of Contact Improvisation and aims to communicate directly and authentically through touch and movement.
In this way of dancing there is space for thoughts, feelings and emotions and thus to embrace being human, unique and still connected with a sympathetic counterpart.
Playing and improvising with movement material lead to the development of ease and joy.
Honour your body as a home for emotions.
Find self-expression in movement quality.
Touch and let yourself be touched.
Learn to speak the alphabet of push and pull.
Follow the flow of movement and surprise yourself.
Questions and challenges.
The ability to response leads to responsibility.
Lead and be lead.
Practice to surrender in order to be able to offer more resistance.
Learn to say no in order to be able to really say yes.
Transform the interplay of power and weakness into freedom.
Carry weight in an easier way.
Turn fear into cross-border creativity.
Use embarrassment for a smiling self-acknowledgement.
Find beauty and enjoy happiness.
