Event description

Description

A definition from Wikipedia: Waack/Punk is a form of dance created in the LGBT clubs of Los Angeles during the 1970s disco era. This dance style was named punking because "punk" was a derogatory term for gay men in the 1970s. Naming the style punking was a way of turning this negative term into something positive.

Waacking consists of moving the arms to the music beat and contains other elements such as posing and footwork. Waacking puts a strong emphasis on musicality and interpretation of the music and its rhythm. It also took inspiration stylistically from movie stars such as Lauren Bacall, Marlene Dietrich, Bette Davis and James Dean.
