Who says gravity is limiting? Spend the afternoon with Lisa and climb, invert, dance, bounce, leap, orbit, spin and fly like you are on the moon! When you Bungee Moon Dance you wear a climbing harness attached to bungees which are attached to the ceiling. The bungees give you levity and buoyancy as if dancing in the lower gravity of the moon. The endless possibilities allow you to move solo or in contact improvisation.

Depending on student’s interests, we divide our time between aerial dance on fabric and hammocks to develop core strength and awareness of moving in the air and bungee moon dancing.

For over 20 years, CI has been taught and hosted at The 418 Project.

Contact improvisation (CI) is a creative dance form emerging from physical contact between partners. It was created by Steve Paxton, a student of Merce Cunningham, in the United States in 1972. The practice transcends the established boundaries between gymnastics, martial arts, meditation and dance. In doing contact, dancers directly experience with their partners the dynamic physical forces which affect all movement: mass, momentum, inertia, friction. The multidimensional nature – physical, emotional and spiritual – of the point of contact also allows the dancers to engage in non-verbal communication in a concrete manner and on several levels.
