Bodies tumble and energy flows as we melt away the layers of winter and dive into Spring with the practice of Contact Improvisation. Open to all ages, backgrounds, levels, and styles of dancing.
Dancers involved in the residency share the fruits of their research with the community during the Jam through classes, presentations, and more.
During this Jam, we will be honoring & celebrating the life of our recently-passed friend and community member Eugene Williams. All are welcome to join us Friday, 7:30pm for a special music jam & more in his honor.
7:30pm Arrival (please be on time)
8pm Opening Circle into music jam
Donations will be collected for Eugene's family and the Eugene Williams Memorial Fund, dedicated to promoting inclusive dance culture and disabilities rights activism & education.
