About the Event
In this follow-along class, participants will be guided through the basics of vernacular dance forms that have been shaped by queer and Black communities, including but not limited to voguing, punkin'/waacking, twerking, and J-Sette.
After class, join us for an ice cream social at Chill Artisan Ice cream for a complementary scoop on us and to learn more about the historical and societal context of these forms and how they fit into Alexandra's pedagogical and creative research.
