Dance with one another!
On most Tuesdays it is simply a jam. A facilitator gathers the dancers around 8pm for a brief check-in circle and a led warm-up. The facilitator will often give the evening a focus or theme, and sometimes will lead a structure for the end of the dancing period. We finish with a quick circle to share our experiences and make announcements. The jam ends approximately 10pm.
On first Tuesdays there is a class before the jam, 6:30-8pm. Class material and teachers will vary, but will always be appropriate for beginners as well as experienced students. Stay for the jam and practice!
On third Tuesdays we spice it up. Schedule is still 8-10pm, but we leave it to the facilitator to do something special, something different. Past specials have been: music, blindfolds, games - whatever a creative facilitators might come up with?
You don't need Contact Improv experience to participate and enjoy the jam. Everyone is welcome, regardless of experience, age, physical ability or any specifics of background. If you are new to Contact, feel free to ask the facilitator or one of the other more experienced dancers to help you out with a quick orientation.
The Jam is facilitated by a rotating group including: Amber Espar, Avital Gan-el, Christopher Ellinger, Frances Idlebrook, Jacob Regan, Maxine Gautier, Neige Christenson, Nelson Tetreault, Paul Spielman and others.
