What is Utrecht Ballroom Scene?
Utrecht Ballroom Scene is a community that centers queer and trans people of color. We organise weekly Voguing classes, workshops, balls, and other events that supports the joy, empowerment and wellbeing of our community.

Ballroom culture was created by Black and Brown trans women and queer people in Harlem, New York in the 60s. From this culture, 'Voguing' emerged as a dance style. Ballroom has influenced pop culture, fashion, art, music, dance, film, and even our vocabulary. Voguing and ballroom culture at large is rooted in the safety and community provided to queer and trans people of color.

Queer Self Defense Course
Recently, our community has been experiencing more and more intimidation, assault and harrassment. All we want is to be our authentic selves, love whoever we want, and express ourselves freely. But queer and transphobic violence has been growing at an alarming rate.

This is why we are organising a self defence course for the queer and trans community. In this course, you'll learn how to defend yourself with the krav maga system, but also learn verbal and mental skills to de-escalate situations and make you feel more safe in public.

This course is free and will be taught by an expert organisation who has run this program many times.

Spots for the September - October 2023 cohort are full.

Find more information about the program here.
Sept 7th -
Oct 19th
