3-days Contact Improvisation

Every summer, we welcome dancers and friends (old & new ones) from Ticino and internationally to our encounter within the event „3-days Contact Improvisation“ in beautiful & summery Ticino, Switzerland.

With a heavy heart we have to inform you, that our CI-Jam from July 31st to August 2nd 2020 in Losone TI can unfortunately not take place.

A month ago we informed you on this website that we postponed the jam by four weeks to assess the situation around the corona pandemic. In the meantime we had to realize that the organization of the jam is not possible this year - especially because the canton Ticino has tightened up various rules for the protection against the corona virus after the latest flare-up of the pandemic a few days ago. Now, in addition to the implementation of the protection concept for dance, which we have already developed and presented, we would now also have to implement a protection concept of preventive measures for catering (buffet) and accommodation (overnight stay in a shared room and in the lower dormitory, which is also the kitchen). After consultation with the relevant authorities, it has become clear to us that we will not be able to comply with this.

The health of our participants, some of whom also wanted to bring their children, is the most important thing for us. We know that there are other organizations that are conducting Contact Jams even under the current circumstances. We would like to say that since the beginning of the pandemic, the canton Ticino has always striven for particularly strict prevention rules and has actively enforced them. In this respect, we expect the current course of the pandemic to lead to further tightening. With our limited staff, it is not possible for us to implement these sort of strict regulations - which we fully support and endorse.

We thank you for your understanding for our decision, which was not easy for us. We hope to see you again in 2021 and, despite everything, wish you a wonderful summer - in the best of health!
