About the Event

We invite you to a free contact dance lesson!

We have prepared a taster lesson of contact dance for you so that you can test whether contact dance (contact improvisation) is right for you. From September we are opening a 3-month contemporary dance course with dancer and therapist Magdaléna Takačová. 

Dance without choreography, connection, flow, sharing, community, closeness, body-mind-soul.

Contact improvisation (contact dance) does not have a specific choreography. It arises in a given moment through the communication of bodies and souls in physical contact through weight transfer, work with gravity, work with the point of contact, with momentum, with dynamics, playfulness, following and leading, with manipulation and resistance.

​It is a joint contact dance that does not have a given choreography and the steps are created in the presence of what is happening.

It is a dance of weight transfer and sharing through touch that is not sexual.

It is a flow, a flow which, when we notice, we find out that even the impossible is possible.

It is a dance that tests our comfort zone. It shows us how we work, our own patterns, boundaries and allows us to get to know ourselves better.

It is the joy of movement that develops creativity, curiosity, playfulness in us and fills us with energy.

It is dynamics, work with the center of gravity, with the biomechanics of movement in such a way that it allows us to fly (literally :) ).

It is about receiving and giving (weight, attention, energy, speed, impulses).

It is a dance that connects, creates a community that supports each other and co-creates space for something new, unknown, emergent.

We invite you to get in touch, connect and connect with yourself, your receptivity, playfulness, creativity, your depths and heights reflected in a free dance full of discovery.

WHEN: Tuesday 24.8. 18:00-19:00

What will you need? comfortable clothes that won't put pressure on you, possibly socks (we'll be dancing barefoot), t-shirts with short or longer sleeves (the skin rubs too much on the floor with tank tops, which may not be pleasant).

How will it go? We will start and end each meeting with sharing in a circle, at the beginning of the warm up and the gradual development of the technical and practical part.

You will be accompanied by the lessons: Magdaléna Takačová Co-founder of Movement LAB and OZ 4Arts Therapy, dance-movement therapist, coach, lecturer of contact improvisation, facilitator of authentic movement and embodiment meditations

After studying Strategic Management and Marketing, I worked for 12 years in the financial field in a management position. My many years of experience in leading movement, dance and dance-music sessions led me to study dance-movement therapy, which I completed my 4-year training in the Czech Republic in 2017. For 10 years, I danced in the integrated dance group LEN TAK TAK, where people danced with and without a handicap. I was part of the creative and production process of performance projects. In 2019, I completed coaching training (according to ICF standards). In 2020, I completed the certified Teacher's Training at the Holistic Dance Institute in Vienna. I attended a number of foreign educational workshops focused on contemporary dance, applied anatomy in movement, bodywork, contact improvisation and somatic movement. From 8/2021, I am starting TRE training (trauma release exercises) and contact improvisation teacher's training in Poland.
