Come and join our next regular Contact Improvisation Jam at the CCA :)

Arrive at 3pm to allow time for your own warmup as we will gather together for a starting circle at 3:15pm. During the first hour, Riccardo from the organising team will offer some exercises regarding safety, comfort, ease and the emotional aspects of contact improvisation.

Contact Improvisation explores the possibilities for movement with a partner or a group. It uses a natural flow of weight, momentum, as well as more subtle connections through touch and the other senses. The form encourages groundedness, listening to one’s own body and other bodies, while connecting to the physical environment in relation to gravity.

A ‘jam’ is a collective improvisation of creative movement, voice or musical instruments. All levels of experience are welcome. An open space to improvise, using tools built up in classes/workshops and our individual practices. They are places to play, connect, express ourselves and explore through movement. People may dance by themselves, in duet, in larger groups, or simply observe.

Participants assume all risks involved in participating in a session with The Glasgow Jam, and release The Glasgow Jam from any liability for their safety. In a jam, participants are responsible for themselves at all times. Children under 14 should be accompanied by an adult.

We endorse and follow these Jam Guidelines outlined by the London CI@Goldsmith community, including recommendations for beginners.
