Enjoy and participate in dance performances guided by Seattle dance artists. 

Having spaces that nourish all of us is essential. In this space, you are welcome to come through to witness and enjoy dance performances from Seattle dance artists and/or to also join us in a mini dance class guided by members of the Seattle W*acking community that will happen towards the end of the event! All ages, all levels, come as you are.

Dance Artists: Tracey, Erika, Kenny, Myles, Nori, Sofia, and Leah

What is Waacking / Whacking / W*acking?  W*acking originated from LA’s underground disco scene in the 70s by the Black n Latinx gay community. It’s more than just a dance, but a culture and movement about radical resistance & liberation from systemic racism by reclaiming one’s individuality, speaking our stories unapologetically, and collectively celebrating and seeing one another.

Requirements: Waivers, current covid guidelines. Feel free to show up, bring things that you may need to care for yourself (ex: water, blanket, snacks, etc).  Mini class will be the last 15 minutes of the event in which you have the option of joining or witnessing!
