Summer in Berlin – Contact Improvisation with Shannon

Contact Improvisation with Shannon Leypoldt, Saturday, 13 & 20.07.2019, 17:30 – 19:00

Tanzraum Wedding
Oudenarder Straße 16-20
13347 Berlin 2nd floor, Entrance A 8

Improvisation: Listening and responding

In this workshop we will practice how we can listen to ourselves, our body, our instincts, while maintaining awareness of our environment and allowing ourselves to be influenced and affected by those around us. Through various tasks we will increase our body awareness, challenge our mind, and explore new physical sensations. We will explore different ways to listen and interact with a partner, a group, and with the space. Through games and group dynamics we will explore decision making around conflict, desire, compromise, and flow. Building upon the partnering skills of lindy hop we will work with leading and following, sharing weight, spatial awareness, musicality, reacting and interacting with our physical environment, and embodying and translating movement. This class draws upon Shannon’s experience working with gaga, partnering and improvisation techniques.

After graduating from the University of California, Irvine with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance, Shannon Leypoldt trained at the  San Francisco Conservatory of Dance under the direction of Summer Lee Rhatigan. Her training includes ballet, modern, gaga, and countertechnique.  

Shannon has performed with Dorky Park, EYAS Dance Collective, wee dance company, burnsWORK, FACT/SF, Sharp & Fine, and Nine Shards Dance Theater Collective.  As member of Wee Dance Company at the Gerhart-Hauptmann-Theater, Görlitz-Zittau she performed choreography by Dan Pelleg & Marko E. Weigert, Shlomi Bitton, Hillel Cogen, and Sommer Ulrickson. Shannon has perform in Taiwan, Israel, Russia, Germany, and the US.

Body percussion became a great part of Katrins work on stage. Feeling the rhythm in all parts of
the body and letting it sound, producing different sounds with hands and feet, letting the groove
flow into the whole body and using the body as an instrument. That is Body Percussion.

her skills in Workshops and classes all over the world (Berlin, London, New York, Barcelona).

Her first techers were Morris Perry and Pascal Hulin, further more important teachers were Tobias

Tak (London), Andreas Dänel (Lörrach) and Heather Cornell (New York). Her work with the rhythm

included soon the whole body while lerning body percussion. Mainly from Andreas Dänel and

Sebastian Weber.

Katrin was a member of the `Berlin Dizzy Tappers` and travelled with tour productions like „Magic

Of The Dance“, „Dancing Feet“ and „Rhythm, Drum and Dance“ through Europe. As an ensemble

member of Sebastian Webers „Tap Royal“ and as a part of the „Solegrils“ she performs at events

and shows in the whole of Germany. She was part of the production „Groove Journals“, which won

the Bewegungskunstpreis.
