Duo with David Dove 

Fire Museum Presents, July 22nd, 2022 at Icebox Project Space. Masks/vaccines required.

Nicole Bindler–dance-maker, Body-Mind Centering® practitioner, writer, and activist–has practiced contact improvisation for 25 years, and her work has been presented on four continents.

Second Saturday CI class/jam

March 12th, April 9th, May 14th & June 11th, 12:00-2:30pm at The Whole Shebang in Philadelphia. Pay-what-you-can, $1-35. To register send a message. Masks/vaccines required.

This 90 minute CI class followed by an hour-long jam will offer an opportunity for us to (re)connect with our partner-dancing-selves on a beautiful, sprung, heated floor (inside!) a cozy dance studio. We will play with the basic skills of touching, rolling, falling (big and small), and gently engaging the reflexes. You are welcome to bring an exclusive partner who you want to work with throughout the class, or you can dance in multiple partnerships that spontaneously form in class. Either way, our time together will have a strong emphasis on consent, using our words, and mutual negotiation.
