A new project, Elkins Dance Jam will promote healthy living with a theme of improvisational movement. The purpose of the event is to create a free, inclusive opportunity for healthy movement and to further foster community involvement within Elkins and Randolph County. Dance Jam will provide people with a large, open studio or area for them to come together and enjoy improvisational dancing to live music. Movement is a key part of a healthy life, whether you do yoga or have a morning workout. It supports the systems of the body and is the basis for self expression, which leads to communication with others.
The first Elkins Dance Jam will take place Thursday, March 15 from 7-8 p.m. in Myles Center for the Arts Creative Commons on campus. Open to all ages, free of charge. Children under age 13 should be accompanied by an adult. Presented by Will Roboski, director of the Davis & Elkins College Appalachian Ensemble.
