The Cawston Players Theatre sponsored a successful Contact Dance Workshop at the Cawston Hall on Sunday, October 6. Twelve people working with Vernon based dance instructor River Ritcey, who introduced this community based dance form to the participants. Contact Dance is a unique form of dance having some structural elements but mainly dependent on a dancers awareness of their inner self and being able to connect with other dancers.
Letting your ego go and clearing your mind is one of the benefits of this dance as well as a physical workout. One of the highlights of the workshop was the Contact Dance jam at the end of the session.
