A Pass the Peace Workshop presented by Bmore Houseful in partnership with Strathmore

Fri, April 3, 7–9pm

Experience the elements of whacking by using Ana “Lollipop” Sanchez’s formula: punking + posing = whacking. This workshop will include technique in using arms, hands, and shoulders, plus working your space with foot moves. Exploring emotions, dancers will use real behavior, learn poses, and play with musicality. As a pioneer of 40 years, Ana “Lollipop” Sanchez will also share her stories of her teachers, who were the originators and creators of this theatrical, fun dance style!

Open to all experience levels.
