Contact Improvisation (Contact Improv) is a post-modern dance form founded by Steve Paxton in 1972 wherein "points of physical contact provide the starting point for exploration through movement improvisation" (Wikipedia).  Paxton has described Contact Improvisation as "spontaneous mutual investigation of the energy and inertia paths created when two people engage actively -- dancing freely, with their sensitivity to guide and safeguard them." Part sport and part art, Contact Improvisation is widely practiced all over the world including here in Boulder, CO.  Sharing Weight hopes to support the Boulder, CO Contact Improvisation community by offering classes, workshops, and jams in this area.
