Whacking for everyone

Would you like to learn how to whack or would you like to become even better at it? Then join this 6 week course in Absalon. We dance on Thursdays at 18:15.


Whacking is poses, arm movements, and soul steps done to the sound of funk/disco music. This 6 week course focuses on teaching the basic arm techniques, funk steps, poses, and the performative element of whacking. Everyone can join.


Whacking originates from the 70’s club culture in California. The style was specially created by bipoc homosexual men, who were inspired by drag queens. Many became familiar with the genre through the TV show Soul Train.
