Contact improvisation

Learn to play with giving and taking weight, fall and land safely, lead and follow. The point of contact between you and your partner determines the flow of movement and the dance that emerges between you will be spontaneous and unique. Courses are available for learning the basics, as well as open workshops for all levels.

A contact jam is an informal self organised event where contact-impro dancers come together to dance. I offer a warm up, and the jam is supported by live musicians (the unbelievably sensitive and talented „trio einfach schön“ accompany our jams in Paderborn).

My biggest influence have been the teachings of Lucia Walker – the principles of the alexander technique are deeply embedded in her teaching. In 2009 I developed and taught „enjoying the not knowing“ with Chetan Erbe.
