Washington DC Contact Improv
This site is for coordinating Washington DC metro area contact improvisation, particularly the weekly Sunday DC jam.
Sunday Jam Current Status
The Sunday jam will not be happening on Sunday, October 31, 2021 (Halloween). It is continuing on other Sundays.
Our studio, Dance Institute of Washington, is undergoing renovation, and will not be available on Halloween.
Otherwise, the jam continues on our regular schedule (see The Sunday Jam), with continuing COVID-19 special protocols:
We require that everyone who attends is fully vaccinated and sign a sheet affirming that.
Dance Institute of Washington, requires of all who attend to:
We will post updates when we figure out the status for subsequent dates.
See COVID-19 and the Sunday Jam for the update history
We update this section with anticipated schedule, venue, or other changes that affect the jam. (Until the pandemic such changes were very rare - barring extraordinary circumstances the jam happens every Sunday of the year.)
On the first Sunday of each month we share an Underscore at our regular time, from 2:00 to 5:00 pm. (Please be on time - that helps the Underscore work well.)
On the other Sundays we have a regular jam, also from 2 to 5 pm. (Timing is more open on those days.)
On the third Sunday of each month, during the first hour, we offer an intro-class concomitant to the ongoing regular jam (at no additional cost for attendance).
On all Sundays we have a closing circle starting around 4:30.
See the Sunday Jam page for details and guidance.
