2019 December – Earthdance Winter Contact Jam

December 27 2019 – January 1 2020 – Earthdance – Plainfield, Massachusetts, USA

Winter Ice

The Winter CI Jam: formerly known as the Earthdance New Year's Jam.

The Earthdance Winter Contact Improv Jam: Earthdance’s annual Winter Jam centers around the theme of darkness and light. One of Earthdance's biggest events of the year, the Winter Jam averages 180–200 people and fills every nook and cranny of Earthdance’s rooms and studios, bringing an intimacy and warmth to the sharing of Contact Improvisation (CI). With long patches of morning sun, luxurious warm-ups, lounging, packed saunas, fun in the snow, bonfires, and performances, the Winter Jam is particularly geared toward anyone looking to connect deeply with self and other through the extremes of Winter.

Please note: the Winter Jam is predominately an adult jam and does not offer specific spaces or activities for young people.

Frosted air, frozen ground, and blazing fires. As winter swirls outside, we come together on the dance floor to find new connections through Contact Improvisation, co-creating five days of magic, intimacy, warmth, and dancing celebration. Workshops, performances, bonfires, and nonstop jamming ring in the New Year with utter joy at our biggest Jam of the year. Bodies radiate heat, fog the windows, and co-create a weekend of magic, intimacy, and celebration.

This Jam tends to fill quickly, so register early!

Earthdance View

Experience steamy dancing in the umbrella barn overlooking a snow-filled meadow, a blazing New Year's Eve bonfire under bright winter stars, and rituals of renewal and promise. This is one of Earthdance's largest contact jam events – a dynamic, rich, and meaningful way to ring in the New Year, not to mention a great place to decompress after the holidays. If you're new to Earthdance or an old friend, please come join us. All levels of experience welcome.

The Jam is usually full by Thanksgiving (USA), so please register early.
