We, womyn of all walks of life, are coming together to investigate what inspires, empowers, intimidates, and confuses us as women in the Contact Improv world.

We will explore what You bring to the floor.

Bring your questions, ideas, experiences, curiosity and playful nature…

We will dance, talk, play, watch, listen, and connect around our uniquely female inquiry into this dance form.

The score for the evening: opening circle, a mixer or two, then at least 2 hours of open jam! All self-identified women welcome!

$10-20, sliding scale
