Manuela Blanchard
Manuela Blanchard (b.1973, Switzerland) has been teaching contact improvisation and new dance for the past 5 years. She has trained intensively and performed in dance (contemporary, butoh, BMC), synchronized swimming, physical theatre and clown since she was a teenager. Her discovery of dance improvisation touched a very profound core in her, and led her to meet great teachers and to continue exploring the form with peers. Manuela is also a water body therapist. Her love for contact improvisation and aquatic bodywork (“Watsu”, Waterdance”) has brought her to teach regularly contact dance in water in Switzerland and abroad. For more information, see

«Dance with the Earth»

About master-class:

Level: all levels.
This class invites you to a contact dance with nature: well rooted in the ground and in dialogue between your center and the center of the earth and those of your partners. We will go on an inward journey where we will explore the resonance of our body landscapes in tune with the natural surroundings.
Alone and as a group, we will engage in a sensual and playful approach toward our environment, using our skin and senses as interfaces and spaces to meet. When we find ourselves ready to open, we can allow the dance to take us into subtle touches or perhaps wild waves.

This class is open to everybody/every level. Come with your inner child!
