The Bristol Ball, Part 1

The Bristol Ballroom Community invites you to Bristol's First Official Vogue Ball

Take to the streets and pay homage to the vibrant and multi-faceted culture of the streets of Bristol, in all their quirks and history.

 

The Bristol Ballroom Community are inviting everyone to Bristol's First Official Ballroom Function. Bear witness to this spectacular fusion of dance, fashion, performance, and gender expression. The public are invited as spectators, or if you have the nerve, you can participate or ‘walk’ the Ball. There are different tickets for walkers and spectators so please be careful when choosing. There is a category for everyone – some will be dance performance based, some performance art, and others just feeling yourself!

 

Originating in Harlem, New York in the 1920s, Ballroom Culture has since spread across the globe. With its racial inclusivity pioneered by Trans figureheads such as Crystal Labeija, the Ballroom Scene celebrates and prioritises LGBTQIA+ people of colour. Members of the Ballroom Scene come together for Balls, where individuals and Houses compete in fashion, beauty, realness, and performance categories for prizes. The Bristol Ballroom Community formed in 2019, as they were obsessed with Ballroom Culture and wanted to make a safe space for Queer People of Colour. They eventually reached out to the wider UK Ballroom Scene.

 

Anyone is welcome to participate, but if you’re new to Ballroom Culture and want to walk any the of categories, why not do some research before you walk? Reach out to the Bristol Ballroom Community or join one of their weekly Training sessions, and please be respectful of who the space was created for. Please see the Facebook link below for a full breakdown of the categories and their criteria. We hope to see you on the Floor!
