Contact Improvisation dancer & teacher
Elske Seidel is a passionate CI dancer & teacher, deeply committed to CI and its community internationally. She has been teaching dance full time and wholeheartedly for over two decades, CI since 2004.
In her teaching she believes in opening spaces where dance in all its vital magic and play can emerge and simply happen. Her work draws from nature as a teacher and values doing little – slowly – so the experience of the participants can expand into the space she holds.
She has taught CI in Europe, Canada, the U.S., Argentina, Israel, Russia and Japan.
She is the artistic director of the Annual Contact Festival Fuerteventura/ E, Contact Saturday Berlin, as well as co-creating the Berlin Weekend Jam, 23h Jam Berlin, North Sea CI Camp/ GER, Dance Your Questions: CI Research Week for Experienced Contact Dancers, ECITE – European Contact Improvisation Teachers Exchange (Ponderosa/ GER), CI Training Program and CI Workshop Series BASICS in Berlin & Hamburg/ GER.
