Together we can achieve amazing things.

The very capable Ninja will be holding space for the majority of the day, and I'm very grateful to have her support at short notice. Thanks Ninja!


From Ninja:

Saturday :

It's all about movement, awareness and connection.

Everything is possible


During the day we will explore various disciplines, from acroyoga, and breath work, to contact improv, and massage.

Don't forget your water bottle, a pen, paper/ notebook and maybe a little towel.



From Eamonn:

Linked, communicating, growing and inspiring each other with our dance and our practice, we can be part of something powerful and deeply restorative.

My intent for this event is to support far-flung CI dancers in their practice; from those curious about the form they’re yet to try through to those with lots of experience. I’ll teach those that need teaching and we’ll all share our skills and make connections.

More than anything this form takes time to learn, so I hope you’ll avail yourself of the opportunity to do it with a sizeable group over a longer timeframe.

More details to come.

This is being run through the not-for-profit ‘Contact Culture’ with all excess proceeds being reinvested into spreading the form.

An ethos of not letting a lack of money lead to a lack of dancing is important to me, so if a financial barrier would cause you to otherwise miss out please get in touch.


About the Form

Contact Improv (CI) is a study in relationship to others, and the dance is a chance to hone that with skill, movement and touch.

With no set steps and no set leader, participants have the challenge and opportunity of practicing the widest possible range of dance moves, and to develop skills around presence, leading, following and flexibility.

I have been dancing CI for thirteen years, teaching for eleven. I think it an incredibly helpful and healthful form, and I am passionate and committed to its spread.
