The (mini) Waackdown:
This event has been brought to you by The Waackdown, group founded by the one and only Katerina Ourda, Belgium’s first waacking dancer. For many years Katerina has trained, teached, traveled and battled to pursue and share her passion for this style. She wanted to bring this to Belgium, but not only the style and its history, more importantly she wanted to give the waacking community an additional home.
This is what they have to say on the (mini) Waackdown:
“The Waackdown is a battle-workshop-jam-party concept for EVERYONE! Meaning: everybody who wants to be part of our Waacking family is welcome to join us in our journey. Some of you might probably wonder what Waacking exactly is, while others already breathe it. For now, we simply introduce waacking as a dance style that was originated from the 70’s amongst the latino/black gay community, but it was and IS way more than just a dance style. Waacking is Love, Home, Family, Fierceness, Shamelessness, knowledge of self and so many more things. Therefore we do not only aim at waackers, but we include all. With The Waackdown we want to create a chill party-atmosphere. A place where everybody can learn, exchange and feel free. We want our waacklovers to get comfortable in battles, cyphers and jam until they drop and get to know their beautiful SELF.”
And since there’s no ‘I’ in Team it is essential to also introduce The Waackdowns’ team, Jessy, Fabio and Lisa. All 3 are waacking dancers from Belgium who got introduced to the style by Katerina. Always at your disposal, ready to waack it down and excited to welcome everybody into their waacking family.
