Welcome to the Australian Contact Improvisation Convergence, or ACIC, or just The Convergence – we’re Australian, we don’t mind what you call it, just as long as you come and dance!


acic16 is now wrapped, details for acic17 coming soon…

June Long Weekend
Thursday 9th – Mon 13th June 2016
Lake Ainsworth, Lennox Head, NSW.

Proudly presented by <proximity> magazine, acic16 will be the seventh annual Australian Contact Improvisation Convergence – after a short 5 year hiatus. From all over Australia, New Zealand and beyond, participants converge and indulge in 5 days of Contact Improvisation (CI) jamming, classes, discussion, and more, in a relaxing and invigorating beachside location.

At acic16 participants will be able to deepen their experience of CI, with the opportunity to choose from an array of classes and workshops lead by some of Australia’s most experienced CI practitioners, as well as the time and space for self-directed inquiry, shared investigations and just plenty of dancing! Many of the popular activities from previous ACICs will return, like the performance night. The convergence continues to support, enrich and celebrate our CI culture in Australia and beyond, for individuals and communities alike.

Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation Centre is nestled metres from Seven Mile Beach as well as bordering a tea-tree freshwater lake. Dance in the beautifully translucent stadium hall, amongst the trees, on the beach, or in the water!

Residential participants stay in comfortable dormitory accommodation with ensuite bathrooms, and continental breakfast provided each morning beside the beach.

Lunch and dinner are delicious mostly-organic, vegetarian cuisine, cooked onsite. Meal times take place beside the beach and under the stars; perfect fuel for 5 days of dancing and getting to know your dance partners!
