Radical Twerk: Reclaiming Ur Blk Bdy

  • Blank Space 2847 Cherokee Street St. Louis, MO, 63118 United States (map)

Twerking, a New Orleans’ dance turned mainstream, has been considered controversial from rap videos to Miley Cyrus. This workshop explores a new perspective on twerk, one that places this dance in its historical and global context and as one strategy to liberating and relcaiming our Black bodies and sexulaity. Come dressed and prepared to twerk and:
-Learn about women centered cultural dances from around the globe
-Openly discuss current and personal connections to historical dances
-Develop your own radical twerking practice
**This sexshop is for everyone, (yes men, you too). You may not want to twerk but you are strongly encouraged to move your body. If you're hoping to just watch other people twerk, this space is not for you.

Cost is $10
