You can also practice at home. Instructional videos are on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/user/INESSENS
We dance on Saturday, October 29th, 3 pm, at Irving Park’s covered basketball court – very close to the corner of NE 7th & Fremont. Please be at the court by 2:45 – we need to register everyone, before the dance begins.
We will also be accepting donations; we ask you for five dollars a dancer, with all proceeds going to local organizations that serve queer & trans people, SMYRC and Sankofa Collective.
Our facebook event page is here; please share!
More info soon on a couple of fun things we’ll be doing that afternoon at the court, as well.
Keep practicing, and we’ll see you soon, Thrillers!
