The last annual association meeting was scheduled on November 21 at 2:00 PM till 5:00 PM.
During the meetings, people writtes comments and proposal for the ACI community. Here, they are, in french & english :


«Plus de transparence sur les projets venant des comités et faire des appels d’offre à la communauté pour ces projets au niveau de sa participation, que ce soit pour l’enseignement, les musiciens, les shows avant le jam annuel.»

«Proposer des jams quotidiens en nature à Montréal – trouver un horaire et quelqu’un propose un lieu à chaque semaine ( printemps-hiver)»

«Constancy of presence, mission et values – help with specific admin tasks translation – English to French»

«Idée pour le silence et focus des jams :
1. Avoir un coin extérieur avec cousins pour les jaseurs
2. Mettre à disposition des jameurs qui ne veulent pas parler des stikers (avec humour = silence is sexy)»

«Un espace plus grand et permanent géré par l’association – utilisables pour différents événements.»

«I would like to propose that we keep open to our original idea of contact improvisation and acceptance. Let people breathe let them play music, dance, play, be themselves.»

«Somehow. It all works out fine and thank for all the beautiful organization that does happen! Let it be.»

«Mettre le jam du dimanche à 5 dollars – cette augmentation irait de paire avec celle du cours de 10h30.»

«Have a space with 2 studios – on big (70-60 persons) one smaller (like 303)
Could be rented 3-4 nights a week +Sunday – could be rented out the rest of the time. If it’s our own space, then we need to run it as well….»

«Plus de variété dans l’enseignement – plus de profs – peut-être de l’aide pour les nouveaux profs – aide à la location de studio.»

«Un forum de discussion plus démocratique que l’AG»

«Un jam moins dense – organiser l’espace autrement ou avoir un espace plus grand par rapport au nombre de danseurs.»

«Un jam plus focusé, moins de parole, plus de conscience de groupe, du fait que nous dansons ensemble dans le même espace – la musique est un bon moyen de créer cette conscience.»

«Un jam de plus par semaine.»

«Un jam gratuit.»

«Un jam similaire au jam du jeudi soir, mais un peu moins de structure, et sans facilitatrice attitrée.»

«Par rapport à l’AG, certaines personnes ( membres des comités) posent des questions. Ce serait bien d’envoyer un courriel, suite à l’assemblée, faisant part des questions à toute la communauté et d’un moyen de donner son avis.»

«Music at the annual jam – should always have choice of alternate space to dance in silence»

«Re-organize Food committee for annual jam»

«What to do re performance jam?»

«What the procedure for Welcomers ?»

«The responsibility of teaching committee began to be too big…taken too much on? Should it be divided?

What’s contact danse?

An invitation to let go in a haven of peace. Dancing, experience the laws of gravity, momentum and balance, that is the contact improvisation.
