Introduction to Contact Improvisation - Marameo - Berlin, Germany

A technical approach to Contact Improvisation: Drawing on concepts from release technique, yoga, Alexander technique, Material for the Spine, and developmental movement, this class will explore specificity to increase the potential of the solo body. Accessing weight, concepts such as momentum, duration, repetition, speed, and loft will be investigated. Choreographic forms will be used as points of departure to investigate different principles of Contact Improvisation.


Thursdays, 19:45–21:15 @ Large Studio
Open for all levels




marameo was founded in 1992 and, since that time, has established itself as an institution of vital importance to the Berlin dance scene. The original concept – to offer affordable, daily training for professional dancers – has remained constant over the years. Situated in the centre of Berlin, the studio sees itself as a place of exchange for more then 100 people, who daily attend classes and who demand the highest quality from our courses.

Mornings at Marameo belong to professional dancers who can rely on continuity, as well as innovative approaches, in both the classical and modern classes which are taught by experienced teachers and international guests. ‘ShowTime’, which has become a very sought-after platform, provides professional dancers training at Marameo with the opportunity to present their work.

Courses on our diverse evening programme are chiefly influenced by each teacher’s unique artistic perspective. There are just as inspiring courses for beginners as there are for advanced dance fanatics. Performance projects, which bring exciting dance pieces to the stage, take place on a regular basis.

Marameo Berlin e.V is a registered non-profit organisation which aims to promote contemporary dance forms to people of all ages. Children, teenagers, adults, amateurs and professional dancers can all connect with and experience the fascination of physical movement.
