[THDA 342] Contact Improvisation
Students build fundamental skills of contact improvisation through movement explorations and the study of physics. In addition, they study the history and theory of the form and how it is evolving. Students develop physical skills for basic contact by falling, rolling, giving and taking weight with the floor, walls, and other bodies, balance, counterbalance, and momentum. The students reflect on the dayâ€™s practice by journaling after each class, gaining further insight on the dayâ€™s lessons and how they relate to the academic study of the form.
