Contact Improvisation with Rosemary Hannon

January 6 - 27, 2018

Drop-ins welcome. ODC class passes accepted, or pay a $15 drop-in fee per class.

This series of classes will focus on:

  • using biomechanical principles to create a greater range and freedom in moving in/out of weight sharing 
  • increasing readiness for rolling, surfing, falling and flying through body organization and movement patterning
  • listening to touch/sensation as inspiration for improvisation
