Rope Dance

Rope Dance is an embodied practice of merging contact improvisational dance/partner dance and rope.  It’s a practice full of exploration, playfulness, curiosity, creativity, spontaneity and possibilities.


One Rope Play

One Rope Play is a practice of rope bondage, that as you guessed, involves one rope.  It is a beautiful foundation for both rope beginners and an approach that highly experienced riggers find to help deepen their practice.  It’s a way to get out of your head about tying knots, focus on the connection and following intuition/impulses in the moment.

Other Teachers

Sasha Wright

Sasha  is a somatic psychotherapist, an avid dancer, and an earthy soul who loves to guide people into shared experiences of creative connection and embodied aliveness. Curiosity, experimentation, and attunement are her allies. These principals first allured her into a longstanding love affair with Contact Improvisation in 2009, and have kept the relationship ever-evolving and ripe with new discoveries all the time. Sasha leads dance workshops and retreats involving contact improv, authentic movement, nature-connection, and other conscious dance modalities.

Sasha also leads embodied earth-based rituals where dropping into body wisdom and synching to natural rhythms connect people to an authentic experience of their own magic and meaning. Sasha provides psychotherapy that supports inner alignment and the mindful embodiment of one’s wholeness.
