Kaeja Elevations

The Art of Flying

Fundamental skills in contemporary partnering that explore the dynamics of momentum, timing and fluid motion that allow partners to take flight.


Using the fundamental skills of contact improvisation partners engage in the play of fluid resistance and define together directions of action. 

Dynamic Tension

Partners follow a through-line of momentum and use support structures to engage in lifts that can be described as outright flying.


The workshop takes participants through a handful of dynamic, momentum-based lifts that allow them to soar and land safely.

"I have invited Tim into my Kaeja Elevations Certification process and have recently asked if he would consider coordinating Master Workshops and teaching the Kaeja Elevations techniques on a national and international scale."

The Knee T

Mr.Cowart was extremely responsive towards solo and ensemble situations as well as in sophisticated partnering sequences. his sensitive approach and clear kinetic understanding of my Elevation Techniques and Contact Improvisation Dance make it possible for him to offer an impressive range of physical/psychological/theatrical suggestions within my movement style.

Side Fly

I have repeatedly drawn upon Tim's expertise in my role as co-director of the Lehigh Valley Dance Exchange . . . Tim has taught masterclasses on partnering . . . Tim is certified to teach Kaeja Elevations, a dynamic partnering style that uses momentum to take people into flight . . . His initially quiet demeanor masks a wry sense of humor that is surprising and fun.
