Improvisation&Contact

Working through long guided processes of improvisation, Contact Improvisation and different physical tasks, you will be guided to touch sensations, emotions, memories, relationships and connectivity. We will work through the notion of repetition and exhaustion, exhausting elements explored through details and energy. In-between moving and reflecting a sense of intimacy and bonding will happen and with it a physical challenge.

The fun environment enables Hagit to push the participants to their limits and to enjoy moving. Combining her skills and expertise as a dance movement therapist with her philosophical approaches to dance, performance and education, she encourages passionate, emotional and experimental approach to dancing and improvisation.

The class enables people to develop an ownership and authorship of their own movement, it class challenges the dancers physically, and, at the same time, works towards creating a sense of a community.

Hagit believes in a positive, emotional, energetic, vibrant and fast way of teaching. Hagit works through musicality and playfulness. Hagit’s teaching methodologies combine her background knowledge as a Dance Movement Therapist with her artistic philosophy and approach.

The class allows insight into the way Hagit works with her Company of dancers in London, with whom she creates choreographic works that perform internationally. Hagit has been facilitating these classes for both professional dancers and the community around Europe, Scandinavia, UK and Israel and has many dedicated followers. She is now writing her PhD in choreography, where she is articulating her approach and philosophy with her practical work as a teacher, choreographer and performer.  

The class aims to develop creativity and virtuosity; it challenges the dancers to take risks, to work with and against their habits and individual movement choices.
