What is a jam?

Jams, also known as dance battles, are opportunities for dancers to showcase their freestyle abilities. There are jams hosted for specific styles. Our jam is an all-styles 2 vs. 2 battle.

What is unique about the BDCP Community Jam?

It is about the youth. Pairs of dancers will consist of one dance that is over 18 years of age and one dancer that is under 18. We believe that our youth can build not only a love for freestyle dance but also establish a mentor-mentee relationship within the dance community.


Structure of the BDCP Community Jam

The Community Jam will consist of a preliminary round to determine the top 16 teams of all applicants. The selected 16 teams will then go through a bracket tournament to determine the winner. A DJ will play music for the entire duration of the Community Jam. Participants in the Community Jam do not pre-select their music. It is required for participants to freestyle to randomly selected music provided by the DJ for them during their round. For each round of the Jam, participants will have one chance to showcase their moves. At the end of each round, a panel of judges will determine which participants will move on to the next round. BDCP will select 3 judges. Audience presence and participation is a must! Winners of the Community Jam will win a cash prize and Baltimore Dance Crews Project apparel. Although Jams are a form of competition, the purpose of this Jam is to share with others your personal connection to music and movement. We want all participants leaving the jam feeling like they are part of a supportive and loving dance family in Baltimore.
