Queer Dance Party: Prance, Kiki, Connect
@WTPUNKFEST in partnership with Compass Gay and Lesbian Center are calling all freaks, geeks, fairies, and floor rockers to join our monthly Queer Dance Open Session. It's a dance party meets kiki with your bestie, meets LGBTQ+ social event. Come as you are! We will take care of the music and the moves.
These 2 hour dance parties are FREE and by donation. Each session is hosted by a rotating roster of Legends and Icons from the underground Punk, Ballroom, and Hip Hop communities, and will usually feature a guest DJ. The host will be available the entire time to demonstrate/teach/guide anyone new to the dances! We will dance everything from Vogue, to House, to Whacking and more! Non-Dancers welcome too!
If everyone still wants to jam after the session, we will all head over to the park or beach and kiki there. Great space to connect with new friends.
This community welcomes ALL levels of music and dance enthusiasts. No experience necessary. No matter your age, gender, sexuality, race, etc, you are encouraged to come prance, express YO-SELF, and connect with dope humans.

WHAT THEY SAY...
“Let’s begin our first week off with a whack, a point, a strut, and a pose. Had a fabulous class with Christopher he’s an awesome fun and respecting instructor to learn from. Let me tell you again this class is free. Class at compass learning lgbt pioneer dance moves at 7-8:30. Come on by next week and learn a move or two..”
