The jam is specifically for non-majors that want to keep their technique and dance majors that want to see what else is out there.

This month, Hannah King, a University of Alabama alumnae, will lead the jam. King graduated from the University in 2013 with a degree in dance and political science. She is now part of Project 7 Contemporary Dance Company.

“I am most excited to see new faces, raw talent, and the positive energy and vibes that always come out of a dance jam,” King said.

As host of the jam, King will come up with a short contemporary dance piece to teach the other dancers. King said the piece is challenging, yet really enjoyable.

“Being in the studio is a dancer’s best therapy, and when you are learning from a peer rather than a faculty member and dancing alongside your best of friends and dance family, the recipe is perfect for letting go and forgetting whatever may be going on in your life for at least a couple of hours,” 
she said.

Emily Higginbotham, a senior majoring in dance, is the president of Dance Alabama! She said the dance jams are great because there are no judgments placed.

“It’s really nice because you get to watch everyone else,” she said, “It’s intimate but we’re extremely welcoming. “
