Tinas swirlieContact Improvisation / Constatic Fusion* dance classes starting up again!! Centered, aware, intuitive partnering in improvisational movement, with and without music as an additional partner.

*”Constatic Fusion” is what I’m calling the fusion of Ecstatic Dance and Contact Improvisation. When we add rhythmic music to CI, there’s a shift in awareness that’s needed if we are going to keep the connection deep and unpredictable, while riding the fun of a great beat. Come see how!

The regular Contact Improv Jam Corvallis meets on 2nd and 4th Sundays, 4-6 pm, at the Downtown Dance studio, 223 NW 2nd Street, Corvallis (just south of the Van Buren bridge). There’s a $10 suggested donation for the jam. I’ll often be teaching for the first half hour of each jam, FOR FREE!! And, dancers are free to take the class or do their own warm-up. NO experience necessary! Hope to see you there!

Start date: TBA


A ConStatic Fusion Intro will be offered at the Eugene Community Ecstatic Dance’s Fall Retreat , coming up on the weekend of Sept. 29 – Oct.1, at the coast in beautiful downtown Yachats!!  I’ll be teaching a 2-hour class on Saturday morning — come for the class, a day, or the whole enchilada! Contact me for details, or find on Facebook.
