This study event focuses on how our practice of Contact Improvisation
shapes and changes the ways we perceive ourselves, others and the
world around. We are interested in naming, framing, and bringing
awareness to the values we gain when practicing this particular
movement form, but also strengthening the bridge between the practice
and everyday life.
We encourage exploration, engagement, sharing, discussion and learning together while discovering CI in its fuller understanding and

“We will concentrate on serenity, listening deeply to the dance that emerges from our interior, from our peers, and between the both. We will explore, from this expressive flow of the body, technical aspects of CI, keeping sensibility, freedom and humour at all times”. Patricia Gracia, teacher and organizer in Contact·teu’s Festival.

Contact Improvisation will be the common ground to continue and deepen our skills to come into a physical and kinaesthetic dialogue with others. We will play with different scores for improvisation to challenge and sharpen our compositional and spatial awareness. Articulation and playfulness are two keywords for this workshop in which we will dance a lot for and with each other. Dances in which we can expect to be in physical contact at any moment and at the same time keeping an awareness of ones own direction in improvising. This workshop will provide a playground for those who are interested in exploring territories in which we use our creative potential in dances that are created in the here and now, the present moment of an improvisation.

The East Coast Jam is a glorious four-day contact improvisation jam, held each fall and spring at Claymont Court, Charles Town, West Virginia. We dance in an octagonal barn and live in a great white mansion, linked by a walk through gardens and fields and forests. All meals (succulently prepared by Claymont staff) are included.
From now until September 25, register for the fall jam at the base price of $310. The price goes up on September 26, so don’t delay!
Visit eastcoastjam.com for details and online registration. Only a $50 deposit (not refundable after Sept. 25) is required at the time of registration, by PayPal or a cheque in the mail.
The East Coast Jam is a collaboration – much like a dance. Warmups, workshops, performances, and other structures are initiated and led by us, the jammers. When we’re not dancing, there’s conversation, music, exploring field and forest, poetry, chocolate, theater, walks, games…
As ever, spread the word by inviting the people you’d like to dance with, and forwarding this message to interested communities. We want to continue to grow and deepen this lovely gathering.
In anticipation of dancing in a few weeks, we hope you’ll be with us!
Early registration prices, until Sept. 25:
$310 (full jam) – $265 (3 days) – $200 (2 days) – $135 (1 day)
