The Australian Waack Tournament - WA Preliminaries

06:00pm, Thu 16th Jun 2022

Australia's First Waacking only battle event since 2016; providing a safe space for waackers of all levels to exchange within the Waacking communities in Australia. This event is brought to you by Karen Siu, a pioneer resident of Sydney's Waacking scene.

The winner of WA Prelim will be flown over to the finals in Sydney, in which guest judge Princess Lockeroo will be attending. The aim of this event is to reunite everybody post covid so let's meet new friends and celebrate with old ones to dance and enjoy Waacking.

This is event is hosted by Waacking In Perth, and is WA's first ever Waacking event. 

Waacking/Whacking/Punking originates from the 1970's in the underground disco clubs by the queer black & latin-x communities. Since reviving in 2009, waacking has seen an explosion in international interest and development with a closeknit international community! It features glamour, fashion, intense arm training and pose- just to name a few! 

Perth pioneer Renee Russo has been advocating for Waacking, representing Perth internationally and interstate since 2017. Since 2020, Renee has been bringing together folks from different walks of life to build the Waacking In Perth community! 

Come support and be part of the ever-growing community locally in battle.
