Within the frame of Salt Spring Contact Improvisation Summer Plunge,
we are excited to present a weeklong Intensive Training
with Martin Keogh from June 13th to June 19th, 2017.

With Martin Keogh

The format:
• Three days of investigation and dancing from 10am- 4:30pm
• One day for rest (June 16th), integration and laundry
• Three more days to deepen the material

We will explore the many currents, ripples and patterns available in our sea of perception. From here we seek those moments when the ripples grow into the spontaneous acrobatics of the form. 
We will work together five to six hours a day. Other activities will include jams, potlucks, and spontaneous surprises. We want to get to know you—your treasures, your idiosyncrasies, your distinctive pathways into contact improvisation. 

Attending a weeklong training allows the group to establish working relationships, and provides the opportunity for everyone to receive feedback and create significant changes in their dancing

Because of the advanced nature of this workshop, this intensive is for those with a solid grasp of Contact fundamentals. 
Martin's teaching history and website is here:
