Body Movements is a platform for emerging artists and crews specialising in dance music for the LGBTQI+ community. Here we showcase and celebrate local and international queer music and culture in a brave, bold and spirited approach.
Body Works and Body Talks
Body Works and Body Talks is our workshop and talks programming. Through this initiative and programming, we strive to create an environment of growth and learning through sharing and practical activities. We ask all guests to be open and willing to share their knowledge, contribute to the free exchange of ideas and respect each other’s different backgrounds and subcultures within music and the community.
Our non-musical programming aspires to provide practical, exciting, and uplifting learning that can be accessed by all, no matter your ability.
Workshops strive to empower and inspire people with an interest in queer dance music and arts, ultimately creating a network of teachers and students sharing their skills.
Programming will centre around:
Queer Bodies incl. health and identity
Queer Music and History
Queer Community and Lifestyle
A full list of events and how you can sign up will be available soon. Stay connected by joining our mailing list.
