Annual Burlington Contact Improv Jam

Each Jam includes a fundamentals class for all levels by a teacher that is familiar with AXIS Syllabus. There will also be a music jam, guided warm ups, urban dance walk / embodiment activism, DJ dance party, and an Underscore.

We work to incorporate social justice into our theme each year and to diversify the organizational and guest artist team.
Please reach out to us with your ideas. Coming soon, a diversity scholarship for participants.
