Queer Bachata Social
September 22, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm
The 1st ever Bachata Social at PO Box collective starts with a warmup and intro to the fundamentals of Dominican Bachata, including partner dancing without the gendered assumptions about leading and following. No partner or previous experience required.
Class is followed by a dance party to practice your moves from 8-10:30pm. Allies welcome if they honor the QTBIPOC-centered space.
Masks are required in the building.
Put your party $ towards a just cause! We will be taking donations for the Community Care Collective of the 33rd Ward going toward breakfast and lunch cooked with love by new arrival families for the ~50 fellow asylum seekers staying at the 17th police station.
At the event you will also have the chance to donate to PO Box collective to help keep the lights on at this all-volunteer intergenerational social practice center dedicated to building Rogers Park community through radical art making, mutual aid & programming.
About your host: Ana is a queer Dominican community organizer out to host an inclusive social space that brings their community together through dancing while supporting just causes.
