Community Class with Alexandra Barbier

Alexandra Barbier by Told Collins

This free community dance class led by artist Alexandra Barbier will explore vernacular dance forms that have been shaped by queer and Black communities

In this follow-along class, participants will be guided through the basics of vernacular dance forms that have been shaped by queer and Black communities, including but not limited to voguing, punkin’/waacking, twerking, and J-Sette. After class, join us for an ice cream social to learn more about the historical and societal context of these forms and how they fit into Alexandra’s pedagogical and creative research.

After class, join us for an ice cream social at Chill Artisan Ice cream for a complementary scoop on us and to learn more about the historical and societal context of these forms and how they fit into Alexandra’s pedagogical and creative research.
