    Class Description



    This class will introduce you to Waacking, a style of dance that was birthed in the early 1970’s underground dance scene. Waacking surfaced on the ever ground-breaking "Soul Train," along with Vouging, a dance popularized in the underground gay scene. Stigmatized by its roots, it manages to attract a newly found respect for the art form from its participants and viewers. It is applicable and accessible to all.
