DanceJam's Mission

To provide a safe, respectful, and non-judgmental dance environment in which to have fun; to foster community around the human body in motion; and to re-connect us with the playful child inside.

DanceJam is a by-product of the expressive arts movement that began in the early '70s along with the post-modern and contact improvisation dance movements. Here in San Diego County, our community has been coming together in the dance for over thirty-five years. We meet three times a week – on Friday nights in North Park, and on Sunday mornings and Tuesday nights in Encinitas.

All of our jams are volunteer-run, barefoot boogie, open-floor dances that are operated by our action team members for people who love to dance and express themselves through movement. Our weekly spaces are a safe, playful and friendly alternative to the club scene.

You don't need to get dressed up or worry about being cool. You don't have to be graceful or have studied dance. All you have to do is like to move your body and have fun. You can dance alone or dance with others -- you choose whatever you need to feel comfortable on the dance floor.

Rotating DJs spin a wide variety of dance tunes from many different genres -- from world-beat, to disco, to swing, to hip-hop, to boogie. The music changes all night long offering a variety of moods and beats to dance to.

As one of our regular dancers puts it, "It's like when you turn up the stereo and dance in your living room just because you need to dance -- except that there's a bunch of other people doing the same thing!"

Why not stop by and check it out?

We invite your feedback and thoughts, both prior to and after experiencing Fridays with the new schedule.  This is your space. Your heart. Your energy. Your place to be present, as you are moved to be present.  Your voice is important!

In the Dancing Spirit,

Lisa Marie, Leah, Manuel, Steve B., Michelle, Bradley
