Beginner friendly pre-jam warmup class 5-6.30pm followed by the jam 6.30-8.30pm. Doors will be closed for the duration of the class to keep the focus, so please arrive early to attend the class, you can arrive at any time for the jam. Dancers can come just for the class, £6, or stay for the jam, £9.
Continuing the theme of rolling and rolling patterns in the body ( from my last class in March), this class will explore more initiation points of rolling, using the senses and our reach and pull patterns as guides. Finding momentum as we evolve these patterns into spirals in and out of the floor as well as in and out of contact, touching briefly on rolling points of contact, this theme will be continued in the next class as well thus layering and building our core Contact Dance stamina and skills.
Suitable for all abilities
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.
