Are you already familiar with whacking and do you want to become even better at it? Then join this 6 week course in Absalon. We dance on Thursdays at 19:30.
Beginners can join the Whacking for all-course.
Whacking is poses, arm movements, and soul steps done to the sound of funk/disco music. This 6 week's course focuses on training arm techniques, funk steps, poses, and the performative element of whacking.
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.
