The Story of the Jam Movement

Inspired by the social & cultural anthropology of various underground phenomenon’s – especially Hip-Hop & it’s use of music, dance, art & word – “Jam!” was created by Yoshi SBX in 2009, who started organising jams on the streets of Bristol, to empower & re-invigorate the local dance scene – regardless of age, race, sex, class, beliefs & so on – through the ethos of sharing, play & kinship with “each one teach one” being the main motto. Thus, a collective of dance artists were bonded, with an aim to help unite, build & sustain the heart, soul & spirit of dance culture with each other & their respective worlds.

Forever honouring the humble roots of its beginnings on the street, “Jam!” now also host jams & events in Bristol ’til this day, whilst helping other communities start-up their own projects across the country, while touring & battling at shows & events around the world, working with all who share the same passion & spirit of dance…
