Milkshake: Twerk, Wine Bounce & Play wraps up another fun series with its last two classes for the season. Bring your friends and enemies to celebrate Spring with booty shaking and a good sweat. $10 drop in, or bring two friends and 3 folks bounce for $20!

Milkshake is a booty-centric dance workout for ALL bodies & ALL booties. Practice and explore intersecting styles of dance including twerk, wine, bounce and yike. You’ll also find hip openers, core strength building, and shaking it every way it feels good.

A note from our facilitator – Erika Stanley “My approach to teaching is of being a fellow student, not an expert or owner of the cultures that birthed and transformed these dance styles. The music we enjoy comes primarily from black american, afro caribbean, and other (queer) hip hop culture. I’m teaching as a demonstration of owning my body and my pleasure. These dances and the music I share in class give me a lot of pleasure. I offer this class as an invitation for others to be more connected to their bodies in a safe space, so they can discover ways of moving that bring them pleasure. I also wanted to hold a space that is deeply intentional, queer/sex/body positive, where we can celebrate our selves and play together.”

This is a queer/sex positive and body positive class. We encourage critical thinking and feedback. Teens and adults of all experience levels welcome. Dress to sweat and bring your water bottle. Leave your -isms at home.
