Come join in the contact improvisation jam, a participatory event exploring this dance technique, in which participants use physical points of contact with one another to explore and improvise movement together. It will be led by Alito Alessi, longtime contact improvisation practitioner, pioneering artistic director of the mixed-ability company DanceAbility International, and Guggenheim fellow. His DanceAbility method has been extremely influential worldwide in opening the doors of contemporary dance to be more accessible to people with disabilities.

This event is free and open to all students and the public. It's organized by UMD's Delta Chi Honorary Dance Fraternity.
