We want to create a community of practice. One of the essential components of Contact Improv is being present with ourselves, with our partner, with the floor, with gravity and... How far can your presence extend? When we have an entire community choosing to make this presence a conscious practice who knows to what heights and depths our dancing can take us?

For those who request ASL translation, attendant care, or have other accommodation requests, please contact Henry Wai at henryhwai@gmail.com by Wednesday, March 14, 2018 to increase the likelihood that we can make arrangements.
  • Here's this year's first email blast. Register at orcj.yapsody.com this month (January) for only $80 CAD. Price rises to $100 in February and $120 in March.
  • Registration for the next Ontario Regional Contact Jam is open. You can register now here: orcj.yapsody.com/event/index/172521/ontario-regional-contact-jam-2018
  • Get yourself to the Montreal Jam first. But then get your tickets for the Ontario Regional Contact Jam 2018. Easter weekend at the National Ballet School in Toronto. Registration is now open.
  • You have until midnight, Wednesday November 8, to get a discount on the annual MONTREAL jam. Click the link below to register online. We'll open up registration for the Ontario Regional Contact Jam soon. (It will be Easter weekend in Toronto, again.)
  • I know the ORCJ has been held over Easter weekend for several years. I guess either that didn't pose a conflict for anyone or else they just didn't say. This year it also coincides with Passover, which, unfortunately, means I'm unlikely to be able to participate. Very disappointing.
  • We have money to help support the broadening and deepening of the practice of contact improvisation in Ontario. Click here for details: facebook.com/ontjam/posts/1571276652903721
