The first hour of the event is a guided warm-up and movement awareness workshop led by Ophra Wolf of Force & Flow, followed by free and open time and space for you to move or observe as you please starting at 3 PM and featuring live music with monthly guest musicians.
Kids of all ages are welcome to the jam portion with adult supervision, the workshop at the start is suitable for adults and teenagers.
Movement and dance improvisation is about moving from the inside, in a way that feels good and organic to your body, and an Open Movement jam is a setting in which everyone is an equal part of co-creating the dance of the room.
You can come dance your heart out, and you can also just come to stretch quietly, listen, observe, draw and just enjoy the energy and focus of a room full of moving bodies. You can dance alone and you can dance with others, even your stillness is part of the dance that we’ll be co-creating.
It’s about tuning in – to your own body, to the space around you, and to the people you’re sharing it with. The only requirement is willingness to look, listen and contribute your awareness – because it’s your awareness that’s making it all come to life.
Your donation helps to keep it going!
$5 – $10 suggested donation for the jam, $15 for the workshop
