how to get there

Here is what past participants said about their experience previous workshop in Trinidad.

"This workshop really opened my mind to movement and feeling/ being free to expression. It is relaxing and teaches you without you realizing to lighten your body weight for someone to lift you. In doing this, abstract movement is created and I think that is the most beautiful thing."

"It was a (life) changing experience for me; not only in the area of dance and 'contact' but also spiritually and mentally."

Jacob Cino is Canadian born artist currently living in Montreal, Quebec. He is a multiple disciplinary artist , Dancer, Teacher, Composer and DJ. He has been a professional dancer since 2003 and is trained in both Contemporary forms specializing in Contact Improvisation and African forms. He composes electronic music for clubs, film and contemporary dance. 

Contact Improvisation is a partner dance form based on the physical principles of touch, momentum, shared weight, and most quintessentially – following a shared point of contact. The form was founded in 1972 by Steve Paxton. Integrating his background as a modern dancer and his studies in the martial art form Aikido, Steve developed Contact Improv through explorations with his students and colleagues at the time. This dance practice explores the skills of falling, rolling, counterbalance, lifting using minimal effort, how to make ourselves light when being lifted, centering and breathing techniques, and responsiveness to our partners and surroundings.

Contact Improvisation is an honoring of every moment. There is a sweet surrendering that happens when our bodies stay faithful to what is happening now, and now… and NOW! One learns to recognize and differentiate subtle impulses in our movement choices and our partner's choices. We begin to decipher the cues that we give and receive which tell us when to lead or follow, when to go up, when to go down, where to touch, how to lift, when to slow down, and when to be still. In this form one learns to stay in integrity with each choice, never forcing, never rushing. When Body, Mind, and Spirit are united in their instinctive wisdom one finds ones-self at home in every moment expressing ones true nature.
