We start at zero; That is: to redefine what is contact—to ourselves, others, reality, gravity. Then we’ll, learn techniques and traject towards a space that supports freedom of flight and expression. I will see what the group is up for. We’ll be doing my favorite contact exercises and current curiosities. Created or learned over the decades investigation and indulgence…

At The Athletic Playground we’ll use the fabulous mats to learn a variety of acrobatic/contact maneuvers including contact flips. Lest this seems too much for you, know that after a lifetime of fear and inability to do flip pathways I did at age 50. Mats and group support will give us safety to try new things. With repetition we become oriented and tricks become skills. There’s lots of support and breakdown of skills for beginners, along with challenging work for the advanced… Disorientation + safety = expansion of movement possibilities and of sense and motor experience. In fact it will take us into «states» work.

On both days:
11am-1:30pm (at the Finnish Hall, 1970 Chestnut St, Berkeley)
3-6pm (at Athletic Playground)

Both days: $250 ($225 for AP members)
Single day: $195 ($170 for AP members)
