Contact Improvisation Jams

Earthdance has long been a national and international hub for the exploration and development of Contact Improvisation (CI). Many of our founders moved from a CI community in Boston to set up a rural center to cultivate this form in community and in relationship to land. We host annual CI Jams four times a year (New Years, Spring Equinox, July 4th, and Falling Leaves) and twice monthly.
