This member can host out-of-town jammers.

Pittsburgh is hosting regular Wednesday night mini-classes and jams from 7-9pm at the Wilkins School Community Center in the Regent Square neighborhood.

Contact Improvisation is a form that encourages movers of all disciplines and movement styles to test the capacity of their bodies, explore their creativity, and build skills, in the mode of connecting and moving with others. Contact improvisation encourages true listening, respect and reverence for fellow dancers, conversation through movement, safety, skill building, and artistic development and refinement.

Musicians are always invited to collaborate with movers.

Organizers: Laura Stokes, Tricia Chirumbole, Ryan Pusch.
