We are thrilled to announce the 2018 Intensive Teachers and Single-Class Teachers Lineup! These teachers are spectacular, and their intensives are not to be missed!

This year wcciJAM 2018 again will be held at University of California Berkeley, 3 large beautiful dance studios await you on the friendly and grassy UC Berkeley campus (see pictures on the website).

The wcciJAM is created for dancers, by dancers: there will be ample space for participants to investigate Contact Improvisation, experiment, discuss, present, and above all JAM! Whether you are a long-time teacher or a first-time beginner, the JAM is a great opportunity to immerse yourself in dancing, and to gain perspective on the many ways Contact Improvisation is practiced.

The practice of CI is uniquely positioned to offer a space for the investigation of how we express our personal boundaries through touch and movement. In this moment of #metoo, we are committed to empowering dancers to maintain healthy boundaries, to cultivate self-care and agency in their dance relationships. With that in mind, we’ve chosen “De/constructing Power” as this year’s festival theme.”
