Contact Improvisation

Join Stone Red for a deep practice of contemplative dance, connection and gentle acrobatics with carefully selected music.

Contact Improvisation is a close body contact exploratory movement research, rooted in contemporary form using physical contact, weight baring, and momentum to explore kinetic possibilities in an improvised flow. It ranges from meditative slow floor work to dynamic acrobatic lifts.

A social dance, during the jam you may choose to dance solo, with a partner, or even a trio/quartet. Or rest and simply watch others to get inspired.

The jam includes an eclectic mix of music: soft rhythms, contemplative pieces,  and minimal soundscapes through to slow world rhythms, electronic downtempo, classical strings and piano.

The class sessions are open level and suitable for complete beginners with a mix of basic and more advanced exercises, whilst the jam itself is not recommended for beginners. Best to join class to warm-up and dance away at the jam.

More information available at:

It is recommended you arrive 15 minutes before class to get changed. After the jam session, join for a social at 59 North Rd, BN1 1YD from 9.15pm.
