  1. I was wondering if there are any classes, teachers or jams on the eastside? Hollywood, Silverlake, Echo park, downtown? I would like to learn and practice and SM far for me, I need to be up early for work.
    Thank you any help you can provide.
    Warm regards,
    Matthew

  2. Hi,

    I am interested in teaching a workshop or class for intermediate to advanced contact improvisers in LA, Saturday May 30 or Sunday May 31.

    I am a performer and teacher of improvisation forms. I worked with Nita Little extensively for 10 years studying, performing and teaching contact improvisation and dance theatre improvisation. I’ve also worked in collaborative improv groups. My performance work is La Lee Lee Dance Theatre.

    I know every 3rd Sunday you have the beginner’s class, which I’d be happy to teach Sunday May 17th. Could a 5th Sunday work for an adv/int class?

    Is there a specific person I should contact?

    Thanks!

  3. @Matthew, at this point this is the only jam in Los Angeles I am aware of.

    @Leralee, I will be in touch with you regarding teaching the May class. The jams take place on Sunday so please pencil in May 31.

    Keep dancing!

  4. Hi all,
    I’m coming to LA from Austin TX for SOMAFest. I’m looking for a place to stay for one or two nights (9/10-9/11). If you have extra space, please let me know. Thanks so much!

  5. Hey Lisa Marie,
    We have added a pre-registration option with an instructions link on the main page of this site. It is not required, though it is quite likely that the event will fill. See you there!

  6. I am a middle school dance teacher at a performing arts magnet in Playa Del Rey looking to hire a dancer/instructor to lead a master class series introducing 12-14 year old dancers to CI. The dancers need to learn the history and basic techniques/concepts. I will be present throughout the class to assist. Classes can be Monday, Wednesday or Friday from 2-3pm. Pay is $25 an hour. Looking for 8- 1 hour sessions. Please email me at lindseyafarris@gmail.com if you are interested.
