*Inner World, Outer Expression, Systems, Skills and States in CI*
An All Level Contact Improvisation Workshop with Alicia Grayson and EE
Asheville NC - Jan 17-18. Suitable for those interested in improvisation,
contact improv or free movement, beginner or experienced.

Dancing is most satisfying when there is congruence between our inner world
(psyche, energy, state) and its changing nature and the outer expression of
that through dancing. As humans we have the capacity to experience a vast
range of states. In this workshop we will explore different body systems and
how they support different states and skills and effect the experience we
have of ourselves, our partners and our dancing. Working with different
systems we will discover more gateways to listening and possibilities for
connection/expression with ourselves and our partners in contact

Systems we will investigate include: skeletal, fluids, visceral, skin,
heart/circulatory and respiratory. We all have favorite systems from which
we live in and dance from. This workshop will open up more choices in
ourselves, our movement and our dancing with our partners. More choice
means more freedom to express our full range of humanness in our dancing.

Alicia Grayson will be the primary teacher and EE Balcos will be offering
some of his genius each day.
