Covid19:   Please, if you’re not feeling well stay home and rest until you’re better.   If you have been traveling to an area with the virus, avoid people for at least 14 days.  

Let’s keep each other safe by washing our hands and following the guidelines of the CDC (Center for Disease Control.)


Guidelines for the Dance
The Burlington Jam is beginning to formalize our guidelines.  I’m attaching guidelines from other dance communities.  We want to keep our jam safe for all participants physically and emotionally.  Please let the organizers know your ideas and concerns so they can be addressed.  

We’ll have formal guidelines written soon.  If you have ideas please email us at  ContactImprovvermont@gmail.com.

Meanwhile please take time to read the guidelines from other jams.

SCENES FROM THE URBAN DANCE WALK 
Burlington International Contact Jam 2017






momentum-based partnering ... rolling point of contact, balancing over center of gravity, sliding, 
following momentum, lifting using momentum rather than muscle power, “listening” with one’s skin surface.
