WHAT IS A BALL?
In its most simplistic description a ball is a dance competition. Modern ballroom culture began in Harlem more than 50 years ago, and has evolved over the past five decades. Though it has grown more mainstream due to pop culture references, the scene remains largely underground and is primarily a community for QTPOC (Queer and Trans People of Color) youth to create and perform.
CAN I SEE AN EXAMPLE OF WHAT TO EXPECT?
Every Ball is different, but we highly encourage you to search for videos on YouTube, on DJ Spiider’s page, or even watch the movie Paris is Burning to watch some amazing people “walk.”
