So often we rely on the arms, hands and center to direct a dance. What happens when we spend time working from our legs and core? We will play with initiating movement for ourselves and our partners and see how this takes us into dancing. The exercises will be simple and profoundly effective, grounding our dance from the feet up.
A jam is an informal gathering of dancers. There is no teacher, but space and time to develop skills and confidence. You are free to dance, rest, or sit and watch, as you wish. The jam provides an opportunity to explore and integrate techniques you have learned, and to find your own routes into dancing.
At some jams a teacher will facilitate a score to follow such as a focused (silent) jam, the Underscore (developed by Nancy Stark-Smith), or a blindfold (or eyes-closed) jam, this will normally be advertised via our regular mailout – so sign-up if you want advance notice.
