Event Description

The JIM is a dancers’ gym. It stands for The Joy In Moving and offers 3 weeks of all-day (10-9:30 pm) classes in technique, somatics, movement practices and experiences--for the amazing price of $108 (full membership early bird by 6/1, $128 after).

The JIM faculty includes influential mover and shakers from Chicago and beyond--such as Darrell Jones, Melinda Myers, Kristina Fluty, Onye Ozuzu, Bessie-award winning Michelle Boule, and many more.  This new summer program has organized to provide the public and practiced professionals a container for the needed cultivation of joy in one’s self, community and culture.

Like other gyms--The JIM operates on a membership basis.  Memberships are available as full (3 weeks) or weekly ($60, choose 1 of 3 weeks) and single drop-in classes are not available; weekend workshops (additional fee) are open for enrollment only to those who are JIM members.
