Contact Improvisation in Amsterdam & Netherlands

( Events and Workshops
Weekly Jam Info About Contact Improvisation Contact Us Images Other Links


Contact improvisation is an open dance form for everyone.  We meet several times/week to dance.  We call these meetings "jams".  People of all levels of experience show up and have a great time. One of the great things about contact improvisation is how easy it is to join in, regardless of your level. Sometimes we have live music: piano, clarinet, drums, vocals.  (Musicians: curious? Please contact us!)  However we often dance without music, following the original style of the form.  If you love to dance, or think you would try contact, please join us.  At least stop by and find out what it is all about.

This site informs about most classes, workshops and events of
  Contact-Improvisation in the Netherlands.

(As the site was started by a group of people running the Satruday-jams in Amsterdam, the name is still called "amsterdamjam", but nowadays it intents to serve the whole Dutch CI-scene.)

There are also classes in Amsterdam and ohter places, both regular weekly classes as well as periodic intensive workshops.  Some people like to start with a class, some like to dive into a jam.

The most recent info can be found in the calendar.
