About the event

Saturday July 20th 2-5pm 

Investment: $50

A contact improvisation workshop dedicated to playing with puzzles and perches. The body has a way of knowing its own ecosystem and being able to meld and merge with its environment. Finding the perfect fit, we can mold and match each other in our CI duets. Like nesting with your favorite tree, or resting into the shape of the rock. We will investigate CI as an exploration of BEING nature and allowing our dancing dates to simply be an embodied elemental conversation. 

This gathering will be rich with games, skill building, and a healthy boost of co-regulation.

Shannon Sahaja is an embodiment alchemist with 2 decades of teaching in the improvisational arts. She found a deep love and respect for the art and technique of Contact Improvisation through her studies with Kathleen Hermesdorf and Nancy Stark Smith. Shannon loves articulating the mechanics of weight sharing for those unfamiliar with the form and brings delight to the space with her unique ability to create safety while spicing things up with humor and spontaneity. She holds a BFA in Dance from S.U.N.Y Purchase, and has been practicing Contact Improvisation and Yoga for 2 decades, and has had good fortune to have studied extensively with many of the most influential practitioners of CI
