“Con la confirmación de que estábamos en un contacto seguro, nos reconocimos en un ambiente seguro para la aventura y la calidez creció. Primero vino la seguridad, luego la calidez. Luego vino… bueno, aquello por lo que uno va a bailar. Encontrar personas, hacer y ver cosas inusuales encontrando desafíos físicos mientras reímos. Siendo movidos.”

∼Steve Paxton

fundador de
Contact Improvisación
