Programming category: 

Bodies tumble and energy flows as we melt away the layers of winter and dive into Spring with the practice of Contact Improvisation. Open to all ages, backgrounds, levels, and styles of dancing.

The Spring Equinox Jam is preceded by CIGR (CI Ground Research), a week-long Contact Improvisation artist residency. Find out more and apply HERE.

Dancers involved in the residency share the fruits of their research with the community during the Jam through classes, presentations, and more.

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.

Professional Rate: for those comfortably paying their rent or mortgage.The Professional Rate also helps us offer lower prices to those who could otherwise not afford to attend.
Full Rate: 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.
Subsidized Rate: for those 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.
Participant Community Support
As Earthdance runs as a​ community, all participants contribute to 1-2 chore shifts (typically meal cleans) throughout the Jam and a Final House Clean from 2-3pm on Sunday, March 19th. These are great ways to connect more with your fellow participants, Earthdance staff, and to feel more at home here. We will be welcoming you into this collective home and thus so appreciate your contributions to our space!
