WORKSHOP SERIES: Contact Improv Boot Camp (8-week series)
SATS AUG 26 – OCT 14 / 2-5 PM
Velocity Kawasaki and Steward Studios 1621 12th Ave
Studio Current (OCT 7) 1100 E Pike St
REGISTER $140 full series / $20 drop-in

The purpose of this course is to become better dancers through rigorous physical training for contact improvisation.  By systematic training in classical CI skills (rolling point of contact, crescent rolls, spiral rolls, lifts mechanics, descent pathways, etc.), we will open up new dimensions in our dancing, inviting more possibilities, surprises, and fun.  In addition, we will explore promising new ideas for contact improvisation inspired by aikido and other martial arts. 

The course will be suitable for practitioners of all skill levels, although it is expected that participants will have some previous experience with contact.  Each session will consist of a two-hour class followed by a one-hour open jam (for the participants only) in which we will apply and integrate what we have learned each day.  The culmination will be an open showing at Velocity to present the results of our work.

I am also open to speaking with dancers, directors, curators, critics, and educators whom don’t consider themselves “choreographers”.

The “Call for Submissions” is a CALL & RESPONSE. We are centering the experiences of people of color. We ask that our white-identified friends support this deliberate anti-racist action by participating as supporters. No matter how you identify, if you are non-white, we want you to see yourself as leaders in this effort.

ACES is a two-day, POC-led, community-curated program with performances, exhibits, presentations, workshops, listening opportunities, and open forums. Our vision is to establish a space for us to celebrate and center ourselves. We are coming together with intentionality to value our work and to see each other as resources, while focusing on the challenges and solutions we face as artists of color in the Pacific Northwest.

We acknowledge that the creative community in the Pacific Northwest is teeming with talent and resources— especially in communities of color where crisis breeds innovation.

Applicants must be:

• 15 years of age or older; Young people are often not invited or included in important discussions and are especially encouraged to apply.

• Washington State residents and those who are infusing the Pacific Northwest with their radiant and invaluable melanin.

• Creatives and those who are the originators of works of art, ideas, scholarship and who work closely with the many communities making up the “art world.” People who provide services, resources, and opportunities to support the sustainability of art and creativity.

Spacefinder Seattle

Spacefinder Seattle is a matchmaking tool for artists and artspaces.

Artists: Whether you’re looking for creative maker-spaces such as rehearsal rooms or painting studios, or presentation spaces such as black-box theaters or galleries, or event spaces, or culinary art space, or meeting space, or classrooms, or even raw warehouses or empty storefronts, then you’ve come to the right place.

Venues: Whether you’re full to capacity with rentals and simply want to market your venue for future use, or you’re looking for a new audience of artists and organizations who may not yet know about your spaces, you’ve come to the right place.

Spacefinder Seattle is a database of every rental space in the region (that we know of) that’s available to artists and arts & cultural organizations. It’s a way to discover spaces that might not already be on your radar, it’s a way to cross-pollinate art disciplines (maybe the most appropriate rehearsal space for your project is an artist’s studio?), and it’s a way to help grease the wheels of our regional artspace marketplace.
