Please come join us in Atlanta July 6-8 for a great Contact Improvisation weekend! If you haven't yet experienced Contact, this would be a great opportunity. If you're not familiar with Contact Improvisation:

Contact Improvisation is a dance form where two partners maintain contact of body surfaces - the shelves and ledges of the back, front, sides, hips, shoulders, and head. The giving and sharing of weight is essential to Contact, which often involves partners lifting and rolling over each other. In Contact Improvisation you entrust your full weight to another but are always ready to fall, to roll to the floor; the bottom line is that you have responsibility for your own weight and safety. The beauty of Contact is in the effortless conversation of two connected bodies in motion - more than anything else, it is about listening.

We are pleased to offer this weekend at a very reasonable cost. Please note our early registration deadline is June 5; registration form is at the bottom of this e-mail. You can also come "a la carte" if you can't come for the whole weekend.

Please help us spread the word by passing on the info below! A flyer is attached, which you can print out and distribute. We would much appreciate your announcing this event/distributing flyers in your area, including the info in your e-newsletters, and sending this on to appropriate dancer/art listserves in your area.

Please note that we do Contact every 1st and 3rd Tuesday in Atlanta at Emory University; e-mail Louiserunyon@aol.com if you'd like to be on the e-list. Next local jam is June 5 - see bottom of e-mail for details.

Thanks, and hope to see you July 6-8!
