* = Likely or sure to be present on 24th of June It is unsure to unlikely if the others will be present. However the weekly Saturday Amsterdam Jam exists thanks to all these people, and as such I feel I should mention them for enabling me to turn this 24th June edition into a special extra long UnderScore/Jam. +I believe The Saturday Amsterdam Jam is a vital core of Contact Improvisation in the Netherlands.

internet: We do have access to the internet usually, but only on a fixed dingy computer relatively far from the studio. +I myself would wish not to be much of an internet person, and do consequently feel ill at ease with this kind of technology/medium or the other way around all in all I am not sure how much you can expect to hear from us.

Talk-Through:  16:10 - 16:30
 I hope to be able to keep it relatively light, short / 'principal', and maybe I won't talk through áll the states/phases and meetings. I will make more information available on the wall or so. It will work OK in my experience. And if some NL dancers are, for my experience, unusually interested in the talk or in studying/practicing the UnderScore more (often), I will surely also invite them to the weekly Wednesday Focus Jams & Score-Labs. These Wednesday Jams I (co-)organise are more oriented in this direction than the Saturday Jam is.

In our Underscore the phases are led verbally to accommodate people who are new to the Underscore, and people are allowed to arrive and leave when they need to. We have this kind of Underscore once a month so things are tuned to be sensitive to the needs of the group - experienced practitioners of the Underscore have found the verbal element non-intrusive, which is our goal.
No Talk-Through because the phases are led verbally
