Wednesday, June 30 - Hip Hop for Him, 7 pm, presented by Health Initiative for Men ~ Online

Hip-Hop for HIM is a beginner dance class where you will learn new grooves and choreography from all types of dance sub-genres that fits to (or close to) the umbrella of Hip-Hop, such as; B-Boying, Dancehall, Voguing, Waacking, Popping & Locking, Commercial, Jazz-Funk and more. Dance is not only a great physical, creative and emotional outlet, it is also a large part of LGBTQIA culture and history. During Hip-Hop for HIM, you are encouraged to dance the way you feel – you can never be “too fem” or “too masc” or “too” anything, just live your best life, and cheer on everyone around you to do the same. This is a space that celebrates you, your differences and champions living (and dancing) for yourself. Get ready to slay the house down!
