Queer Ballet Class is for LGBTQ folks of all ages, regardless of gender, body type, fitness level, or experience. Whether you want to re-live childhood hours spent at the barre or are interested in exploring this dance form for the first time, this is your invitation to experience ballet in a fun, non-judgmental environment. Despite the strictures that are sometimes drawn around this art form, we can reclaim it and make it our own, discovering the subversive potential of movement. This workshop includes basic ballet terminology, gentle stretches, an introduction to proper alignment and lots of joyous movement.
Presented by In The Streets Productions (the folks who bring you The Femme Show) with support from the Boston Pride Foundation.
Maggie Cee teaches ballet to ages 3-adult and is proud to have taught and choreographed for diverse groups including queer youth, elders, burlesque dancers, and proud fatties. Queer Ballet is based on her Ballet is For Everyone workshop, which has been featured at queer youth conferences and the 2012 Femme Conference.
Advance tickets are $5 plus the Brown Paper Tickets service fee. This secures your spot in the class. You are welcome to pay less than $5 if that amount is too high for you, but you will need to pay cash the day of your class.
