Event description

Description

Venue is up and we have over 25 attendees at our Victoria workshop Sat!

Consent is easy right? Just ask, and respect the answer you’re given.

But sometimes asking out loud is hard. How do you fully communicate through words what you want to do with your body? How do you communicate verbally without interrupting your flow? What if words aren’t your strong suit?

How about using touch to talk instead?
Touch Talk is about communicating non-verbal consent through contact, motion and sensitivity.

No experience or partner necessary. Wear comfortable clothes, as this will be an active class.

Come learn how to speak less and say more, using your body to communicate with touch. Go beyond body language, and learn how to clearly and precisely speak and listen with your body. Learn how to maintain active consent every moment, all without saying a word.

This class uses partner dance techniques, but it is not a dance class. As dancers, we use the intuitive language of partner dance to instantaneously converse during a dance. We’ll use these same tools to teach how to communicate physically in a variety of contexts, from holding hands to sex to kink to giving good hugs. By distilling the essence of how we communicate, we hope to both give people tools to improve the way they touch and are touched.

Karen, Niko, and Patrick have collectively been dancing for over four decades. Their specialties are partner Fusion and Blues, and they have taught throughout the Pacific Northwest and American South. Beyond teaching and organizing regular dance events, they have started taking their skills and applying them off the dance floor to things like consent, kink, and kinky dance.

Your teachers:
Patrick Gonet (Macon, GA)
Karen Lani (Vancouver, BC)
Niko Bell (Vancouver, BC)

We aim to be accessible to all, if finances are an issue please talk to us!
