It is for those who want to investigate body intelligence and givenness. They include physical abilities, mental concepts, habits, attachments, memories. I invite you to consider it broader: as an entrance-exit to our unique ability to choose to LIVE and to dance.
The first relationship of a baby with the world starts with a hug.
The purest entrance to dancing is like a hug and reconciliation with our thoughts, body limitations and fears.
We will hug ourselves and broad the territory of our movement, dance and our concepts of ourselves and our understanding of dance.
Five ways to develop our dance, to make it “advanced”
1. Coordinating centre of the body and the limbs, seeing the body as an entity.
2. Integrating spirals into movement, using three-dimensional, multi-level and ever changing space around us.
3. A conscious interest to being upside down. Integrating the space behind the back into dancing.
4. Relaxing, releasing tensions in the body

Anjelika Doniy
I have studied to be a choreographer, I´ve been taught various skills of training and means of teaching the body of another person. In my “archive” there are many stage pieces from folk dance to ballet miniatures. My work in the Theatre has been the tastiest. The actors, direction and dramaturgy broadened my mind and my image of the dance art form. I began to see how the art of charming the audience is created.
Since I´ve met contact improvisation and the first CI teachers, I practice the art of de-educating the body of another person and disentangling the illusions about movement and dance.
I think that the human being is already perfect the way it is created, and I believe in nature and it´s laws. I dance, investigate and live in accordance with this vision.
I´m prompted in life by the ability to fall in love unconditionally and undoubtedly with people, movement, mountains, journey, ideas. This ability has helped me to learn everything that forms me right now. This is what teaches the others.
CI is the only dance that helps me leave the limits of personality and transform my consciousness. In this sense I´m the student, not the teacher. The better I learn, the more chances have the others to learn something from me.
My special interest in contact improvisation is clarity. Clarity towards the practice. Honesty towards how do I move my weight in the space of Gravity. Attention towards clearing the dance from the personal. Letting things happen as they do.
I´m grateful for meeting such teachers as Steve Paxton, Nancy Stark Smith, Danny Lepkoff, Benno Voorham, Lisa Nelson, Esther Gal, Alexandr Girshon, Yaniv Mintzer, Yorg Hassman, Martin Keo and many others.
