Come and join our next regular Contact Improvisation Jam!

Arrive 3pm to allow time for own warmup. We will start at 3:15pm with a warm up led by Penny Chivas. Penny is a Dance Artist based in Glasgow who founded The Glasgow Jam a few years ago and has many years of experience in Contact Improvisation. More info here.

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.

By booking a ticket and joining a jam you assume all risks involved in participating in a session with The Glasgow Jam, and release The Glasgow Jam from any liability for my safety. In a jam, you’re responsible for yourself at all times. Children under 14 should be accompanied by an adult.

Please bring a water bottle to hydrate yourself and warm comfortable clothing.
