Sunday Jam Current Status

(Check The Sunday Jam page for general practical jam info.)

  • No jam on Jan 16, 2022. Due to COVID surge and particularly the hospital system strain.

  • No jam on Jan 23, 2022. Our studio, Dance Institute of Washington, needs the entire building for an event.

  • We will decide about Jan 30, 2022 at least a week before the jam.

  • Otherwise, the jam continues at the regular time and place

    • As the pandemic continues we require all who attend to be fully vaccinated.

    • Our studio, DIW, requires completing a COVID screening survey each day that you enter the building, and also sign a COVID liability waiver one time, and wear a mask at all times while in the building. Please see COVID-19 and the Sunday Jam for instructions!

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.)

Every Sunday (with exceptions noted above) we have a Contact Improvisation jam or Underscore at Dance Institute of Washington, a four minute walk from the Columbia Heights Metro station.

  • [Not currently happening, hoping to resume as soon as COVID settles more] On the first Sunday of each month we [will eventually] 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.
