The SF Bay Area queer, trans, and allied dance communities are coming together to celebrate our various cultures, communities, and passion for dance and we want you to be a part of the experience!
Be prepared to dance the night away and show your appreciation in the spirit of “Noche de Catrinas” – a powerful, historical form of social and class criticism originating from Mexico in the 20th century. Individuals with a connection to the cultural heritage of Catrinas and who want to recognize the beauty and power of this cultural icon are welcomed and encouraged to wear attire that honors the history through dress/make-up. We will be selling masks for folks to wear during the social.
We want to honor Catrinas while also not encouraging Cultural Appropriation. For folks who are wanting to know more information on cultural appropriation versus cultural appreciation click on the link in in our bio.
COVID-19 Protocol: Masks are encouraged
