 Moab Jam: May 24 - May 28, 2018

The Moab Jam features rich dancing, creative friends, beautiful surroundings, and opportunities to explore both on and off the dance floor. Being under the wide-open desert sky surrounded by colorful landscape fills one with the spirit to move and create. We invite you to come join us and experience the magic of dancing in the desert.

We create a friendly and supportive environment where you can enjoy the Jam that you want - whether it's dancing non-stop, spending time with friends, or taking time to nourish yourself with the solitude of nature.

Organizers note: For the 2018 Moab Jam we invited dancers from 3 different countries (France, Chile, Finland), and from both coasts, and the midwest. These "Jam Hosts" will support the Moab Jam in a variety of ways. They are extraordinary dancers, bringing enthusiasm and commitment to the investigation of Contact Improvisation (and other practices). Each one has exceptional generosity towards sharing their artistic passion with dancers new to CI, with those well along the dancing path, and with other professional dancers. They each value the power of creative community, a rich exchange of perspectives, movement styles,  and pedagogical approaches. They collaborate to create the structure and rich environment at the Moab Jam. 

Additionally, Mirva, our Finish 2018 Workshop teacher, will be here at the Jam as a Jam Host, and will present material to ignite the wisdom of our "inner landscapes"...infusing the magic of improvisational presence informed by the natural environment.

lend their inspiring presence to the Jam, and part of their role is to circulate and "juice-up" the dancing spaces. They lead warm-ups, facilitate mixers, guide classes and labs, provide feedback/coaching, and offer one-to-one sessions. There are a generous number of Jam Hosts, so that everyone gets time to dance with these world-class dance artists.

Here's a sample of the  Jam Schedule.
