Welcome to our monthly DANCE JAM in Antwerp!

Open to all levels! We meet in dance, joining an open, mixed level jam space to play, train, practice and compose together. We will explore different improvisation forms, contact improvisation and group compositions. The key is to keep it playful!

Each time we start with an introduction session of one hour, where a teacher will share some tools and principles. This session helps us to tune in as a group and find our way towards the dance floor. During the sessions of February and April we will dive into principles of improvisation in relation to musicality, group dynamic, and imagination. The sessions of March and June will be focused on the principles of contact improvisation.

HOW IT WORKS:

The class takes place from 3 pm to 4 pm, the open jam space follows between 4 pm and 6 pm and is sometimes accompanied by live musicians. We encourage you to join us for both parts: you do so by registering via this page.

If you only want to come for the jam, you don't have to register in advance but can just come at 4 pm (be on time!) and pay a contribution for the studio costs via Payconiq (cash not possible).

Via this page you register for the April jam + workshop. Click here for the dates of the other dance jams this spring!

ABOUT A JAM:

  • a (contact improvisation) dance jam is a mixed-level, co-responsibility training space to practice and explore (contact) improvisation, dance and improvised movement
  • it's about playing and experimenting
  • it's about exploring physical laws and forces while moving through space, sometimes in physical contact with someone else, sharing weight along the way
  • it's about improvising, exploring, dancing, communicating, listening, awareness and having fun
  • it's about joining-in to create an instant composition of movement in space with others

Practical

Wear clothing in which you can move easily. We dance barefoot. Bring a bottle of water for in between dances.
