QUEER BALLET - Workshop - PIFF 2021

— Bricks
Queer-friendly ballet workshop
price: Headfirst Tickets


“Beginners ballet for bodies that might not fit into other cis sexualised classes at your local town hall - this is a fun and inclusive workshop for people who want to pirouette like a queen.”
Join the Headfirst mailinglist for recommendations.


TIMES: 16:00-18:00

This queer-friendly ballet workshop aims at making the usually highly gendered and exclusive world of ballet accessible for everyone who wants to get a taste of the glamorous and sparkling world of prima ballerinas✨. The class is a space for bodies and identities that are non-traditional in the world of ballet to break classical rules and express who they are. Learn the basic steps of ballet, work on your posture, and express yourself freely in a safe, inclusive and relaxed (but of course sassy!) environment. This ballet class is primarily for trans, nonbinary, and gender nonconforming people, but is open to anyone respecting of this safe space. Leggings or tights recommended, but please wear whatever makes you feel most comfortable. Training can be done either in socks or barefoot.

All tickets to both our physical and online screenings are available through Headfirst via our website, or at the Bricks Bristol Box Office during the film festival. Tickets for most events are on a sliding scale of £2, £4, £6 or £8. Choose what to pay based on your circumstances. We ask that you be honest with yourself about your financial situation. This allows us to provide financial flexibility to those who need it most and makes PIFF affordable to more people alongside sustaining the festival and supporting queer filmmakers. If you have any questions about what you should pay, please get in touch via info@palacefilmfest.org or ask one of our volunteers on the day. Free tickets are available too, just email / message us and there will be no questions asked.
