Jam in July for Free

All Summer long, Ford Theatre Foundation is presenting JAM sessions, which stands for Jazzed and Motivated. They are participatory events where you can channel your inner artist. The sessions are designed for everyone, from the completely inexperienced to the amateur and professional. All sessions are free.

Starting July 16, JAM sessions will be offered at locations throughout L.A. County. “Monday, July 16 you can play klezmer music at Ford Theatres in Hollywood with professional musicians selected by the L.A. Jewish Symphony. Tuesday, July 17, get in a fiesta mood with Mexican folkloric dance led by Grandeza Mexicana Folk Ballet at Amelia Mayberry Park in Whittier. On Wednesday, July 18 the beat of West African dancing and drumming of Balandugu Kan beckons at Martin Luther King Jr. Multi-Service Ambulatory Care Center (MLK MACC) in Willowbrook. Thursday, July 19, learn to salsa with CONTRA-TIEMPO in Old Town Newhall Arts District in Santa Clarita. Experience the joy of joining in a drum circle directed by Chris Ramirez at East LA Civic Center on Friday, July 20. Cap the week with Brazilian samba as taught by Viver Brasil at Recreation Park in San Fernando.”
