At Jammin' on the James, we aim to provide a safe and diverse social environment, whether in the classroom or on the dance floor. We strive to ensure that all of our attendees feel comfortable regardless of race, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, religion, physical appearance, age, dance role, or skill level. 


In keeping with that goal, discrimination or harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. This may include offensive or derogatory comments, deliberate intimidation, stalking, unpermitted photography or recording, or unwelcome sexual attention. If a violation occurs, Jammin' staff may issue a verbal warning, remove the individual from the venue, ban the individual from future events, or where appropriate, contact law enforcement.


If you are being harassed, witness another person being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of the Jammin' staff or any event volunteer. Our staff is there to help handle the situation, provide escorts to a vehicle, contact law enforcement, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event. Your concerns will be kept completely confidential.

In addition to onsite help from the Jammin' staff, Richmond has its own Safe Spaces Committee to handle any issues you have that you may not wish to address in person or that you may even want to submit completely anonymously.

Please look for these people at the event or contact them if you feel the need to.
