Sunday Jam Past

The Sunday jam has been happening for a long time. On November 27, 2012 we found out more about our history when Robin Gilmore posted to our group mailing list some stuff she discovered in her files...


Robin Gilmore:

'Look what showed up during a purge of old file cabinets (the old fashioned metal kind)... Almost live from 7th St., circa 1982, it's Robin, Roger, another Robin and someone whose name escapes me.

Check out Roger's Tom Selleck look!'

Roger Neece:

'The studio space was at 407 7th ST, NW, the old Washington Project for the Arts (WPA) building. I had a shared studio with Murray Spaulding (now in NYC doing her "mandala" work), and we split the 7th floor with Eric Hampton's ballet studio.

We all mucked it out from 18" of pigeon guano, laid a floor (Alex?) and danced there for 3 years. I think that the other Robin is Robin Bowie?

Cannot remember/ID the other woman in the pic. David Appel and I shared teaching duties, twice a week. We moved into this space after being at GWU for 2 years, then we were on to using space with Liz Lerman at her old Landsburgh department store loft.'

Ken Manheimer:

'Since then, the DC jam has been at several places along the way, including two substantial tenures at St. James' Church parish hall in Northeast DC, American University, Glen Echo Park, Joe's Movement Emporium in Mt. Ranier, MD, and George Washington University.

The shifts have happened for many different reasons, but we've missed hardly any Sundays along the way.'
