Kiki Ballroom 101

Presented by AIDS Committee of Ottawa

The AIDS Committee of Ottawa celebrates Snowblower (week of events hosted in winter) and invites you to Kiki Ballroom 101 – an introductory interactive learning workshop on all things ballroom and vogueing. Ballroom is an underground LGBT+ subculture in which people “walk” (i.e., compete) for trophies and prizes at events known as balls. Black and Latino LGBT+ folks were the pioneers of this culture in the heart of New York City.

Legendary Toronto based vogue pioneer, Twysted Miyake-Mugler, will be teaching this workshop. Twysted will close the workshop with a stunning vogue performance to demonstrate the art form. Some snacks and non-alcoholic beverages are provided.
