This year Asheville Jam is crafting a special and diverse experience for our Summer Jam!

We’ll be weaving together our favorite dance forms to create a diverse, heart opening, and experience expanding event.

Fusion and Contact Improv on August 5th
Contact Improv and Contemplative arts on August 6th
Dancing with Nature – Silent Disco and Waterfalling on August 7th



Asheville Jam supports our local dance community by making amazing events like these accessible to everyone! We offer sliding scale entry, so everyone can attend. We also offer scholarships, just contact us.

This event we offer registration both per-event (for those who can only attend one or two events), and for the whole weekend.
We recommend registering for the whole weekend.

Whole event*: $75-150

Per-event: $10-40 per block (~2 hours)

Dance Yer Nature (Silent Disco)*: $30

*Whole event registration does not include the Silent Disco. Dance Yer nature (Silent Disco) registration is separate, as there are a limited number of spots due to technology and space limitations. However, those not participating in the silent disco are welcome to join us in nature on that day for movement scores, picnicking and waterfalling.

Check out the Facebook event.
