write to Ulli:

In this Intensive you have the chance to dive really deep into the form of Contact Improvisation, going for three weeks of ongoing practice and intense training with a very experienced teacher in a group of dedicated dancers.
We will feed our bodies with a lot of technical tools and tricks, engage our mind longing for a deeper understanding of what we are doing when we are dancing CI and inhabiting a human body. And yes, we will nourish our soul, craving for an environment of heart-open like-minded humans, where artistic expression is just as important as fresh air, healthy food and sunlight.
We will start with the floor, connecting with gravity and our breath and inviting a deep listening as a base of contact from body to body.
From Floor Work to Shoulder Lifts, engaging in discussions and watching videos, working extensively in the studio and use the nature as a landscape to immerse ourselves... losing ourselves for finding something new. Together.
Be ready for a transformative experience in your dancing and in your life.

I already feel honoured and excited to be your guide on this journey,
Ulli Wittemann

Your host
Ulli Wittemann
A passion for movement and growth has drawn Ulli to new directions since he was a child. He started with Ballroom Dance at age 9 and besides practising Ballroom Dance and Hip Hop as a teenager and 30 years of studying different Martial Arts forms (Judo, Aikido, Kickboxing, Boxing and Muay Thai) he deeply fell in love with Contact Improvisation in 2001 during his actors studies at the University of Performing Arts in Frankfurt, Germany.
After eight years of performing more than 1000 shows as an actor in the German State Theater system he decided to change his focus from performing to sharing his love for Contact Improvisation, Acting, Awareness and Communication in Munich and abroad. Since 2010 he taught Workshops, Classes and Retreats in China, Japan, India, Thailand, Bali, Israel, Palestine, USA, Canada, Mexico, Russia, Crimea, Turkey and many European Countries.
He is one of the Founders of the TanzTageTempelhof in Germany and the Conscious Flow Festival in India and the Mazunte Contactfestival in Mexico and is one of the organizers of the BODY MIND SOUL Festival.
His annual retreat BEING HUMAN takes place in the beautiful mountains near Munich in August. Together with his wife Isabelle Pyttel they founded the CONSCIOUS SENSUALITY Retreat and they keep growing together by the adventure of parenting - they accompany two wonderful kids on their journey.

Thank you for your curiousity and interest in my work!
