Bekkah is one half of the creative duo, Turnip and Lillywhite – leading movement, film making, and photography workshops around the world.
Their film work has been seen at the Chicago Center for Art and Design. Currently they hold Contact Improv Jams in Jacksonville Beach, FL.
My explorations of CI are a refuge. This place keeps my reflexes and awareness alert. Allowing comfort, mystery, the strange and intimate to co-mingle. Intrinsic to the form is the potent meaning of connection to others, while sharing an experience of the principle dynamics of nature.
Teach contact improvisation at Nicole Cote School of Dance in Palm Bay, Florida. We meet every Wednesday morning from 10a.m. to noon to play and explore pathways of moving together. Experienced or novice, we welcome you. The cost is $12 per class.
I organize a contact jam in Sarasota south of Tampa and north of Ft. Myers from the start of January through late May, and sometimes October through December. Visit contactimprovfl.org, though it's hard to keep the times up to date since they change, so don't go by the site – be sure to email or call to check. Please sign up for the email list on the site as that is where we email current schedule info. I also give individual lessons for $20 at my house, or $30-$40 if I drive to meet you. I'm trying to start a barefoot boogie here as well. I run two nonprofits: www.dailysource.org and www.leastof.org. Please visit them if you're into high quality news or helping the poor.
