A container for those who identify or have identified with womanhood or being female bodied, regardless of gender expression.
In this focused CI container, we will explore how our commonalities connect us and invite us to show up more in-tune. By creating an intentionally fem space we hope to invite regulation, mutual resourcing, and grounding support. This offer is an opportunity to explore the dance without the presence of the male gaze or the dynamics of gender/sex-based inequality. What can we create? What can we express? How can we hold and empower each other?
We hope this to be a nourishing and liberating experience for those who identify or have identified with womanhood or being female bodied . We welcome and encourage non-binary and gender non-conforming people who feel comfortable in spaces centering fem identity to join us.
This jam is an affinity space for those who experience or have experienced gender or sex based marginalization based on their perceived alignment with womanhood/being fem-bodied. We ask that cis-gendered men refrain from joining this jam.

Originally from Chevy Chase, Maryland, Liana has been growing roots in Western MA since moving here for college in 2022. She is pursuing all things community living: how to tend the earth, receive Her gifts, and create a sustainable life of peace and wellbeing. Through Contact Improvisation she has experienced a beautifully rewarding exploration of her Self. She is work-exchanging this winter at Earthdance to continue this journey and practice creative living.
Liana’s identity as a young woman is present with her in dance spaces, and she is navigating towards increased feelings of safety as well as supporting others to find safety.
She looks forward to dancing with and learning from you!
Yarrow grew up down the road from Earthdance, in Dalton, MA, and has spent her life in deep relation to Earthen communities of different kinds. Whether building a fire or faerie house, tending to a garden, a young child, or an elder, deep listening and the honoring of animacy in all is at heart of her work.
Yarrow draws inspiration from seeing her body reflected in the hills of western mass, her bones in the trees, her tears in the rivers. She is currently excited about exploring the power of proprioception and skeletal alignment through dance, as well as supporting the interruption of apathy and doom through mutual aid and connection recovery practices.
At Hampshire college, Yarrow studies decolonization and reciprocity, as well as restorative justice, circle keeping, and performance art.
Yarrow has studied CI with Gabi Revlock and Chris Aiken, as well as many other gracious dance partners and teachers in the last year and a half.
