Acro partnering basics and Contact Improvisation w/Tommy Russo

Who is it for?

Level 1-2 beginners /intermediates. People with interest in acro basics, partnering acrobatics, and Contact Improvisation
——————————————————————————————-
What is it about?

Beginner to intermediate level, one day workshop
Easy way up, soft way down- feeling what’s right for you. Partnering and group work to find your balance and confidence in basic acro positions, fluid movement, and Contact Improvisation.
Working from a baseline score of specific exercises, gentle techniques and games, we’ll incorporate breath, body awareness, and muscle tonus to improve somatic sensitivity and listening skills. We’ll also combine core strength exercises to train and strengthen our bodies and reflexes so to progress more confidently and safely into giving and receiving weight. As well as static poses and transitions, you’ll be basing, lifting, and flying into the amazing fun world of fluid acrobatics and contact improvisation.

Who am I?

Tommy Russo (USA/BE)
A poet at heart, as a child I couldn’t sit still, always exploring and practicing. I trained in combat sports from an early age, then went on to study psychology at U.Mass Boston U.S.A. I’ve practiced/ trained in folk and ballroom dance, Drama Therapy, Postural Integration, Shintaido (dance form of Aïkido), Savate (French kick boxing), Clown Work, Family Constellations, Contemporary dance, Alexander Technique, play fight, partnering techniques and Acroyoga/Acro.
Since 1997 I’ve been part of the Contact Improvisation and dance community in Belgium and more recently the acro /acroyoga community. In 2003 I opened my own dance studio and began hosting and supporting a variety of guest teachers, workshops, classes and jams. I’ve been teaching movement skills, dance, and Contact Improvisation for adults and children since 2013, and love exploring dance, acrobatic movement and improvisation in the context of self and group identity and as basis of social inclusion and evolution. A passionate believer in people, I love the power of play.

Week-End C.I. Workshop in Leuven

Hello dear everyone of you,

It’s that time of the year again when I come for a Belgian visit…
And quite soon … !

Spontaneous visit calls for spontaneous workshop proposals…
Here are all the info you need to know :

Contact Improvisation is a dance form where moving bodies dance together through touch and shared weight.

Connecting, being one, going apart, flying and falling and so much more…

The classes :

The classes take place in a gentle and introspective atmosphere to permit us to connect with our body, learn basic techniques and explore free dance.

We will start calmly by taking the time to dive into the body, usually lying down. Using some Feldenkrais tools, developing awareness.

From lying, it evolves into improvisation exploration first alone then with a partner. With a theme, a special focus.

– That could be either a focus on life experience, philosophical questions. Evolution as a person and in a relationship with others, as feeling home, stepping back to see the whole picture, arguing, having a conversation, letting go of something, etc….

Making parallel with dancing. How we move in life, how to move alone and with a partner. What is the connection between those two, how do they affect each other.

– Or a more technical focus as supports, spirals, falling, the eyes, …
But always, making some parallels with what that means in life experience; to receive support, to fall, to see, …

Gently rising from the floor, passing by different levels, lying, rolling, sitting, all force, standing.

And through that structure, making some technique points through partnering combinations to sit knowledge, build confidence and good reflexes.

Then, we end up with free dance, letting go, washing out, enjoying how the body feels like moving after all this focus.

If you are interested in learning, developing your body awareness through dancing with others; to carry and be carried…. You are welcome !

Feel like trying ? :-)

This is an open level workshop, suiting for beginners as well as people who already have some experience in C.I..

The workshop is taught in English.

About me:
Dancer, Contact Improvisation practitioner and teacher, Feldenkrais practitioner in training, I’ve been teaching weekly classes and workshops of Contact Improvisation (C.I.) in Brussels, Leuven and Gent.
Coming from a rich dancing background, I fell in love with C.I. and Improvisation while studying in a professional contemporary dance training. I assisted Bar Altshuler (BE/IL) for two years, learned from other amazing teachers such as Yaniv Mintzer (IL), Lior Ophir (IL), Linda Bufali (IT), Alex Guex (CH/FR), Katja Mustonen (FIN/GR),… While, in parallel, studying in Feldenkrais Foundation Training with MBS in Germany.
It’s been now more than a year since I left Belgium for living in Tel Aviv, enjoying and learning from the rich C.I. Community here.
Coming back regularly to Belgium, I am happy to propose workshops to share, practice and dance with you.

C.I. Summer Workshop

 

Contact Improvisation is a dance form where moving bodies dance together through touch and shared weight.

Connecting, being one, going apart, flying and falling and so much more…

The classes :

The classes take place in a gentle and introspective atmosphere to permit us to connect with our body, learn basic techniques and explore free dance.

We will start calmly by taking the time to dive into the body, usually lying down. Using some Feldenkrais tools, developing awareness.

From lying, it evolves into improvisation exploration first alone then with a partner. With a theme, a special focus.

– That could be either a focus on life experience, philosophical questions. Evolution as a person and in a relationship with others, as feeling home, stepping back to see the whole picture, arguing, having a conversation, letting go of something, etc….

Making parallel with dancing. How we move in life, how to move alone and with a partner. What is the connection between those two, how do they affect each other.

– Or a more technical focus as supports, spirals, falling, the eyes, …
But always, making some parallels with what that means in life experience; to receive support, to fall, to see, …

Gently rising from the floor, passing by different levels, lying, rolling, sitting, all force, standing.

And through that structure, making some technique points, often through partnering combinations to sit knowledge, build confidence and good reflexes.

Then, we end up with free dance, letting go, washing out, enjoying how the body feels like moving after all this focus.

If you are interested in learning, developing body awareness through dancing with others; to carry and be carried…. You are welcome !

Dancer, Contact Improvisation practitioner and teacher, Feldenkrais practitioner in training, I’ve been teaching weekly classes and workshops of Contact Improvisation (C.I.) in Brussels, Leuven and Gent.
Coming from a rich dancing background, I fell in love with C.I. and Improvisation while studying in a professional contemporary dance training. I assisted Bar Altshuler (Contact Improvisation teacher BE/IL) for two years, learned from other amazing teachers- such as Yaniv Mintzer, Lior Ophir, Linda Bufali, Alex Guex,…- during workshops and festivals I attended in different countries (Germany, Italy, Poland, Israël…). While, in parallel, studying in Feldenkrais Foundation Training with MBS in Germany.
It’s been now more than half a year since I left Belgium for living in Tel Aviv, enjoying and learning from the rich C.I. Community here.
Coming back regularly to Belgium, I am happy to propose workshops to share, practice and dance with you.

 

 

C.I. Summer Workshop

 

Contact Improvisation is a dance form where moving bodies dance together through touch and shared weight.

Connecting, being one, going apart, flying and falling and so much more…

The classes :

The classes take place in a gentle and introspective atmosphere to permit us to connect with our body, learn basic techniques and explore free dance.

We will start calmly by taking the time to dive into the body, usually lying down. Using some Feldenkrais tools, developing awareness.

From lying, it evolves into improvisation exploration first alone then with a partner. With a theme, a special focus.

– That could be either a focus on life experience, philosophical questions. Evolution as a person and in a relationship with others, as feeling home, stepping back to see the whole picture, arguing, having a conversation, letting go of something, etc….

Making parallel with dancing. How we move in life, how to move alone and with a partner. What is the connection between those two, how do they affect each other.

– Or a more technical focus as supports, spirals, falling, the eyes, …
But always, making some parallels with what that means in life experience; to receive support, to fall, to see, …

Gently rising from the floor, passing by different levels, lying, rolling, sitting, all force, standing.

And through that structure, making some technique points, often through partnering combinations to sit knowledge, build confidence and good reflexes.

Then, we end up with free dance, letting go, washing out, enjoying how the body feels like moving after all this focus.

If you are interested in learning, developing body awareness through dancing with others; to carry and be carried…. You are welcome !

Contact Impro Beginners’class With Lauren Delestre

 

Here we go for a second period of C.I. Beginners’class !

The classes will take place in a gentle and introspective atmosphere to permit us to connect with our body, learn basic techniques and explore free dance!

Learning, developing body consciousness through dancing with others; to carry, be carried and let yourself carried away… are what the classes will be made of.

The first tree classes will be open. We will take the time to welcome everyone and get to know each other. It is also an opportunity to feel if the classes suit you and, eventually, to join for the whole period.

Then I close the group. It is important to feel secure with the group, mostly evolve together and practice with people with similar level.

For more information or if you have any question, do not hesitate to contact me.
