Welcome to Club Waack! It’s a thriving Saturday night, the dancers are out, the music is groovy and Mama Doll’s Waacking extravaganza is about to start…

Travel with us to the fantastical world of the 1970’s queer phenomenon, waacking, and enter Club Waack –a love letter to this street dance style pioneered by the Black and Spanish gay community in Los Angeles, told through a distinctly New Zealand queer lens.

Explore the theatrical and glamorous influences that embellish this dance style and its fight for survival in a society full of oppressive social constraints. 

Ride alongside a queer journey of self-discovery. Bring your disco shoes, and prepare for a night of nights because once you Waack you’ll never go back.

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
