CLASS DESCRIPTION:

Connection and Spontaneity in Contact Improvisation

At the heart of contact improvisation is the connection between ourselves and our partner. When this connection is open and grounded yet sensitive and fluid, it becomes the starting point for the unfolding of spontaneity and surprise. Through games, exercises, and explorations, this workshop examines connection in contact improvisation and its role in unlocking a kaleidoscope of possibilities. From this foundation, we will work our way into lifts and descents with an emphasis on both safety and spontaneity. Dancers of all levels are welcome, including complete beginners.


Jonathan Lilly came to contact improvisation in 2013, after twenty years of training in aikido, a martial art that can be said to be a direct ancestor of this dance form. His movement and teaching styles are deeply informed by his experience with the Feldenkrais method of somatic education, as well as by a daily meditation practice in the Tibetian Buddhist tradition. He has taught workshops or classes in contact improvisation at a half-dozen locations in the US and Canada. In his day job, he studies ocean physics.

A Partnership Dedicated to Economic Inclusion: Five Questions for Wells Fargo’s Jenny Flores

LISC and Wells Fargo have worked together for more than three decades to expand economic opportunity for underserved communities, investing more than $1.7 billion in affordable housing, economic development and entrepreneurship--with $182 million invested in the last three years alone. We recently asked Jenny Flores, head of Small Business Growth Philanthropy for the bank, about what drives its community commitments and why CDFIs like LISC are important to its strategy.

The Transformative Power of an Expungement Clinic in the Mississippi Delta

One in three Americans has a criminal record, many of which reflect dropped charges or fines their holders simply couldn't afford to pay. In Greenville, MS, where far too many people, especially Black residents, can't pursue their goals because of barriers created by their records, LISC and a coalition of partners launched an expungement program to help job- and education-seekers get those charges and fines dismissed. It's part of a movement to upend the criminalization of poverty and help people advance on the path to wellbeing and financial stability, in Greenville and beyond.
