A sea of people all moving in and around each other
Sometimes apart, sometimes together.
Rolling, tumbling, flying
Standing, snoozing, breathing, laughing or maybe even crying.
What the hell is going on?
Bang goes the idiot button.
Based on the observations of Nancy Stark Smith, we will guide you in movement through the Underscore. Giving insight to the dynamics of any CI Jam you may encounter, but also now a practice in its own right that brings focus to the dance.
Facilitated By Agnieszka Grenckowska and K’lo Harris.
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.
