Event Details

For many in the trans* community, it might be difficult to imagine, but your body can be your ally in helping you unlock your dream life.

-- How does your body confidence reflect your overall confidence?
-- What is the connection between body image and living your dream life?

-- What are your most heartfelt desires for your life?

These are just some of the points that will be addressed in the Rock Your Body Danceshop!

It’s easy to fall into ruts and roadblocks as we make our way through our personal journey. Moving your body can open your life in more ways than just getting a workout. When you open your body, you open your mind. And when you open your mind, solutions and insights to addressing body image and other confidence issues seem to flow much easier and can put you in full connection to your body, mind and soul in order to create the positive changes you so richly deserve.

The Rock Your Body Danceshop is a combination dance class and personal growth workshop. Growth is facilitated through group discussion, writing exercises and fun and grounded dance via Latin, African, ZUMBA and House styles. You will have the opportunity to engage in keeping-it-real bonding with your classmates while receiving support around your body image. And you’ll do it all in the spirit of fun, dance and community.


Workout/comfortable attire and dance/athletic shoes are required. Students should also bring water and a pen and paper for journaling purposes.

Trans* Lounge

The Trans Lounge is a trailblazing new series of educational and empowerment workshops, labs, events and groups aimed at serving the needs of all transgender individuals in all aspects of their journey toward self-discovery and acceptance.

Trans Lounge programming will include: make-up classes, hairstyling classes, voice-feminization labs, coming out groups, trans-related legal workshops, personal growth and empowerment workshops, community building networking events, issue-driven discussion labs and other many other events, all of which are relevant to all aspects of the trans community.

How will the Trans Lounge work?
Unlike other education and empowerment themed programs, the Trans Lounge will depend upon its participants to determine and guide which programming is offered. To accomplish this, participants must first register as a member of the Trans Lounge by visiting our online hub at Becoming a member of the Trans Lounge is free to all trans-identified individuals who wish to join. 

Once registered, Trans Lounge member will have access to the Trans Lounge Members Only area within the Center’s website. That is where members will find descriptions and information about our library free workshops, labs groups and events. Once there, members are asked to review all of the various programs and rate them all based on their level of interest. Member’s interest rating options will range from: “Not Interested”, “Maybe/Maybe Not”, “Moderately Interested”, to “Very Interested – Sign Me Up.” Trans Lounge administrators will monitor all the member ratings and will use this data to determine which programs will be scheduled in order to meet the membership’s greatest needs and interests.

At this point, administrators will contact the instructors to schedule those programs that the membership has expressed the greatest interest in. Programming dates/times will be determined based on instructor’s availability as well as the member’s availability guidelines (which they are asked to provide as part of the registration process). Once a program has been scheduled, those members who expressed the highest level of interest will be given first priority to RSVP/enroll in the program. Once those members have had time to RSVP (72-hours), the entire membership will be informed about the program and all other members will be able to enroll until the program reaches its enrollment maximum.

All workshops and labs will be programmed in this manner, so to ensure strong attendance and maximum utilization of what each program has to offer for the membership. This also ensures that our instructors will enjoy presenting their programs for optimal sized audiences.

In addition, the Trans Lounge will also present on-going social and support groups and short-term, topic-driven salons. Groups and salons will include: coming out to self, coming out to the one’s we love, living with HIV-AIDS, embracing your femininity/masculinity, embracing faith, how to love and support the non-trans people we love and support, how T can build community with LGB people, etc.
