The Arches and Sense Scotland present

Contact Improvisation Masterclass

at TouchBase, 43 Middlesex Street, Glasgow, G41 1E

Sat 13 - Sun 14 Jul 2013 | Sat: 10am-5pm | Sun: 10am-4pm | £85 for both days (includes lunch/refreshments)

A two day masterclass in Contact Improvisation led by Itay Yatuv, Artistic Director of the Hakvutza Dance School and one of Israel’s leading dance teachers and practitioners.

Beginning with individual work, incorporating floor work and using momentum, the class will then move on to work with a partner, looking at the learning process that happens with duet. Through games and different tricks, the aim is to disrupt habits and discover new ways of challenging your boundaries as a dancer. Although it will be hard work, it will also be a lot of fun.
