I started dancing at the tender age of 44 and have been having fun exploring a world of movement possibility ever since. I dance four times per week. For me, dance has been a joyful, embodied pathway to presence – our ability to listen and respond to each moment, as well as for connection and realising potential. My practice of dancing Contact Improvisation has benefited most from:
– dancing with dancers of all experience levels in places including Seattle, Winnipeg, Ann Arbor, Kitchener, Montreal, Boston and Washington
– learning from the classes and workshop of many generous teachers
– experience facilitating Contact Improvisation classes (especially for newcomers)
– presence cultivated from practices of Nonviolent Communication, tai chi and vipassana meditation.
I am delighted with introducing Contact Improvisation to newcomers and have a particular enthusiasm for teaching people with little or no dance background.
Contact me if you’d like to learn more about Contact Improvisation dance or freestyle dance and what it can offer you.
This website was created because I wanted to broaden and deepen local interest in Contact Improvisation and other movement practices. Contact me at henryhwai (at) gmail.com
