MORE CONTACT: CONTACT IMPROV MEETS ACRO YOGA
Jeffrey Nash returns to lend his special touch with contact improv to Chirtopher Filkins’ acro yoga mix on Friday the 13th at Laughing Frog Yoga. This week we will explore more analogs between contact improv and acro as we dip into the idea of rolling uphill. Whether in acro or in contact there are methods to roll them up those flyers.This should be a completely non standard acro class. Last time Jeffrey showed up at LF we had a blast and I think this time promises to be more of the same. If you have an experienced contact pra
ctice you know that Jeffrey is a master at the lift and carry. He runs the local contact jam at 6:30pm on Sunday evenings at Dance Home and we are really fortunate to have him share and explore some of how our ideas mesh.Get ready to try lots of new stuff if you haven’t done contact before. And if you know both acro and contact be ready to have your understandings of both challenged.
Please come! Class is $15 for 1.5 hours of instruction followed by 1.5 hours of open jam. Bring some water, a mat, and a friend if you want em. Class begins at 7:30pm with the jam going until 10:30pm.

BE AND/OR BRING A BEGINNER CLASS TAUGHT BY Jeffrey Nash
Jeffrey Nash began to explore dance and movement in the Early 80′s. In the late 80′s he discovered “contact improv” and began combining principles from his studies in holistic health and physics to his exploration of the dance form. He was a performing member of the Carol Solomon Dance Company from 1992-1994.
During more than 30 years of work and study Jeffrey has also created an eclectic distillation of health approaches known as The Awakening Process. Its focus is to return to the basics of what healing is; the natural movement toward our joy and our wholeness, and to present a set of tools/techniques to assist people in that process.
He has taught and worked with clients across the US and Canada as well as in Europe. His work also includes over 20 years with the Simonton Cancer Center and nearly four year as Director of Massage Therapy at Glendale Career College. Jeffrey is presently an organizer of the California Contact Improv Jam at Harbin Hot Springs and the LA/Santa Monica Contact Improv Jam. He continues his work with the Awakening Process while also exploring movement and dance, and teaching and practicing the contact improv form.
