10:30 am-noon: Playful Contact Improvisation Jam
Opening circle at 10:30 is followed by a different brief group opening score each week, then open jam with a closing circle at the end to harvest the fruits of our experiences. Some have asked: “what exactly does ’playful” mean" or “Why call it ‘playful jam’ and not just ‘jam’?” The answer: recognizing that any contact improvisation jam can include playful qualities, we carry out an intention for extra, pervasive spirit of play in this jam. We often make “playscapes” using big gymnastics blocks, and incorporate “toys” like balls and hoops in our jam.
