Programming category: 

Frosted air, frozen ground, and blazing fires.  As winter swirls outside, we come together on the dance floor to find new connections through Contact Improvisation.  Bodies radiate heat, fog the windows, and co-create a weekend of magic, intimacy, and celebration. Workshops, performances, and nonstop dancing ring in the New year with utter joy at our biggest Jam of the year.

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 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's operating costs.
The Subsidized Rate is for those with an income low enough that making ends meet is a challenge.
