Guest teacher Katy Dymoke will lead a somatic-based warmup, tuning into reflexes and pathways. Katy is a super facilitator with decades of experience in Contact Improvisation and has collaborated extensively with some of the pioneers of this dance form, such as Steve Paxton. She is also the program director of Embody Move, the license holder for the School for Body-Mind Centering training programs in the UK.

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.

In a jam, you’re responsible for yourself at all times. Children under 14 should be accompanied by an adult.

All welcome. Doors open from 2:45pm. Arrive 3pm to allow time for own warmup. We will start at 3:15pm. You’re welcome to stay for as much or as little as you like.

Ticketing provided by CCA on a sliding scale. You can book in advance or buy a ticket at the CCA counter. You can also join without a ticket but we'll ask to pay £5 at the end of the jam to anyone without a ticket.
