The Gratitude Jam & Workshop Celebration with Tim O’Donnell

November 24, 2016 - 5:00pm to November 27, 2016 - 3:00pm

A 3-day workshop offering tools for attentive and dynamic listening in Contact Improvisation. Discover the balance in falling, redirecting, composing, and soaring - the balance that allows us to risk the unknown more fully. How do we dance in a way that allows us not just to be seen, but understood? How do we listen in a way that helps us take greater risks physically and compositionally? This workshop is open to all levels and backgrounds of dancing. Open jamming is welcome all weekend-long.  Photo by Aurore Biry

*In the aftermath of the election, Tim is generously donating his teaching fees to the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union)*

Our Sliding Scale


The fees to attend Earthdance Jams and Workshops are priced on a sliding scale. Please pay at the highest level of the sliding scale that you can afford. This allows others who need to pay less the opportunity to attend.


The Professional Rate is for people comfortably paying their rent or mortgage, and who can afford the occasional meal out and movie. The Professional Rate level also helps us offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend.


The Full Rate is for those who have a regular income and are paying their mortgage or rent. Prices at this level contribute to the range of Earthdance operating costs.


The Subsidized Rate is for those without an income or with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge.

Work Study and Scholarships are often, but not always, available to offset the costs for Earthdance events.
