*** 8pm – 9pm RISING INTO FREEDOM BY DEEPENING TRUST IN OUR DANCE w/ Autumn Turley
How can we build trust in ourselves, our partners, our dance, that we may open new spaces of freedom in our movement? In this Contact Improvisation class, we create a safe space to explore our edges, offering tools, techniques, and exercises to deepen trust in our solo, partner, and group dances.
Trust sometimes means fearlessly saying “yes” to opportunities to grow… sometimes means clearly saying “no” to that which is beyond our boundaries… and sometimes means honestly saying, “I don’t know,” in faith that it’s ok to not know.
One of the greatest gifts of Contact Improv is the opportunity to develop and honor boundaries, so that we can trust one another and be more free in our dance.
Autumn Turley’s teaching is inspired by her experience in Contact Improvisation, Taoist Energy Arts, Spinal Awareness, and Esalen Massage. She uses improv movement as a spiritual practice, a healing technique, and a tool for deepening self-awareness and connection with others.
“Faith is the boat that catches us as we plunge into the boundless waters of the unknown. Trust is the pair of hands that build the boat.” – Autumn Turley-

Ecstatic Dance Guidelines
1. Move however you wish
2. No talking on the dance floor
3. Respect yourself and one another
4. Ecstatic Dance is a Drug & Alcohol Free Space
5. Please also refrain from photos, video, and shoes & scents.
Many people dance in their own space, and others share their space with another.
To engage in a dance with someone, use sensitivity: Are they open to sharing their space with me? Mirror movements, offer a hand, brush by, make eye contact, and see & feel how they respond…
