These are practice sessions are mostly for those with some experience Voguing etc, so that everyone can practice by themselves as well as in the group. We will then dedicate time towards 10s and battles for any category, especially if anyone is walking a ball soon. The sessions will occur regularly, on a donation basis. Priority will be given to QTPOC (Queer, Trans, People of Colour) and marginalised groups. Reach out via email if you are interested in joining!
these are not introductory sessions, keep an eye on Instagram (@HouseBallScotland and @Qiwa_event) for more information about beginners’ classes/workshops for Voguing, Runway etc.
Facilitator(s) : These sessions will be facilitated by Asli 007, a young FQ in the Scottish Kiki scene who walks EU runway. Additional guidance offered by elders in the scene.
Few words on donations:
Participation in our community-led events is often on a voluntary ‘by donation’ basis. This means that nobody is expected to make a payment if they cannot afford to do so. However, any donations received will be shared between the Centre and the facilitator, helping to make the events’ programme sustainable as well as to provide some reciprocity towards community facilitators’ time and skills offered.
Where a “suggested donation” is listed, this is just an indication of what the event might cost if it was ticketed – it is fine to donate less (or nothing at all). Donating is one way to show your appreciation for the value of the Salisbury Centre. Please consider ‘paying it forward’ by donating a bit extra if you can afford, helping to keep it possible for everyone to take part, regardless of their circumstances.
