ARIANE PUHR studied music therapy and psychology. She has been dancing Contact Improvisation since 2010, teaching since 2014 and organizing jams and workshops. As part of her psychology studies, she did scientific research on the effect of Contact Improvisation. Contact Improvisation has become an essential part of her life. She also uses dance and bodywork in clinical and therapeutic contexts.
For Ariane, the focus is that Contact Improvisation offers the possibility to come into an understanding contact with oneself and one’s own body and to be in encounter with other people through the communication of touch. Creating a safe, mindful framework for this is a special concern for her.
