Hip Hop Class

WAACKING

Ballroom Dancing Club

Style Description

Waacking found its start in the 1970s gay clubs of Los Angeles where high-energy funk and disco music dominated the airwaves.

It was in these clubs that poor Black, Latino, and Asian men found the freedom to express themselves through movement, despite the oppressive environments they faced in day-to-day life.

Originally called “Punking, Waacking emerged as a style that focused on empowerment and strength.

And while “Punk” was originally a derogatory term, the gay community reclaimed it as a positive action verb.

This class is on Tuesday at 7 pm taught by Nika. All ages are welcome. Here you will learn the basics of Waacking and Waacking routines.
