@TGJ January newsletter

Dear Jammers,

Happy New Year! We are so grateful for a wonderful 2016 here @TheGlasgowJam: we have had more regular participants than ever, our community is building a solid foundation of practitioners and facilitators, and we have hosted a number of very exciting workshops. Here is to more in 2017. We do have exciting plans we will be unveiling in the coming months so keep an eye out for our newsletters and Facebook updates.

Remember that, from January 2017, our jams will be £7, and our Sunday class and jam will be £12. If you can, please bring the correct amount, as we will only have a few opportunities to give change. As always, we are keen to hear from volunteers to help directly at our jams, or give time in another way should finance ever be a question of attendance. 

Is there anything you would like us to do differently in 2017? Any skills you would like us to focus on, practitioners you would like us to invite? We are always open to your suggestions and value your feedback. Do email us!

Our exciting new programme for January to June 2017 is online and we hope to see you at our jams and classes. Our first one is on Sunday 15 January with the wonderful Monika Smekot at the CCA. Class 12-1pm and jam 1 to 3.30pm.

Paul Henry's Butoh classes
How to Live an Image (Pt II).

How can visions, feelings and memories move us? Can inner images transform our body and create a new dancing body? How can we move (and be moved) honestly? For people who attended the previous workshop this is an opportunity to further investigate the relation between their body and imagination. New people are welcome to explore, discover and challenge themselves.

As normal, single tickets are £20 / £15 concession, and block bookings (4 classes) are at £60 / £40. For single tickets please use the CCA box office (link above).
