CounterPulse is proud to host the longest running contact improv jam in the Bay Area! 25 years going strong. Each Tuesday evening features a focused or thematic class from 6:30PM-8PM followed directly by a jam, which lasts until 10:30PM. Attendees are welcome to attend one or both, and both are open for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. The class and teacher rotates each month.

An art space for contact and improvisation, experimentation and inquiry. Tuesday nights jams are a focused forum for movers and shakers: experimentation is welcome, be it in physical, sociological, performative, or compositional realms. Each improvisor is responsible for their own choices. Each jam is cooked up by those who show up.
