Ezra LeBank is a Movement Professor at California State University Long Beach. Meditation, Aikido, and acrobatics all work their way into his CI practice. His many CI influences include Nancy Stark Smith, Ray Chung, Rebecca Bryant, Mike Vargas, and Shel Wagner Rasch. He has taught at International Contact Festival Freiburg, Warsaw Flow: Poland Contact Festival, Seattle Festival for Dance Improvisation, West Coast Contact Jam, Convergence CI@50, and workshops from Melbourne to Athens to Cagliari to Los Angeles. His research asks the question if we can fly and fall without noticing much, and always asking about moments of crisis. More at
