Home Alone FB Cover FINAL

Where: Zoom (A virtual video calling platform) *read more on this in the descriptions*

Contact: Bill ·


This is a great way to move our bodies and connect with other cool people when we are physical distancing at home! We will be participating in a beginner level waacking class through a virtual platform called zoom.

With roots in Westcoast underground clubs in the 70s, Waacking is a style of dance that is deeply rooted in queer and trans self-expression and resilience. With the glamour of old Hollywood and the funky rhythms of 70s disco, your arms and bodies will start dancing by itself!

***
This is a beginner level class. No prior dance experience is required, this is a wonderful opportunity for both folks who have never attended a dance class and folks who have previous dance experiences.

***
To participate in this event, please RSVP below! We will reach out to you before the event and share the private link.
The Zoom virtual space will start at 1pm
