2019 Open Planning Meetings

We're planning the next Ontario Regional Contact Jam April 19 – April 21 2019. We invite all members of the Ontario contact community to join the planning group, already in progress.

We regularly accommodate out-of-town teleconferencers, so please let us ( know if you would like to call in.

We want to plan our way forward in an open way with broad involvement from the Ontario CI community. So join us and help guide our common future.

If you'd like to participate, but can't come to meetings, contact us, and we'll get you hooked in with the group.

Call for assistants, volunteers, and organizers


Help with Billeting
Can you offer billeting space for our out-of-town dancers? Billets bring their own sleeping bags and pillows; the jam feeds them; all you need to provide is a floor or sofa. Please contact us at if your living space has a floor.
Help with Help

We're organizing the 2019 Ontario Regional Contact Jam, April 19 – April 21, 2019, in Toronto.

We invite all interested and committed contactors to join in the creation of another awesome contact dance experience.

We're looking for help with all kinds of sub-projects: flyer design, advertising and promotion, specialty workshops, food preparation, billeting, set-up and clean-up, facilitation, music, budgeting, incorporation, and all kinds of stuff we haven't thought of and you have.

We'd like to invite members of the contact improv community throughout Ontario and neighbourhood to help us pull it all together. If you've got an idea of how you can contribute, please let us know. Contact one of us, and we'll get you hooked in with the group. EMail a Human:
