The Welsh Ballroom Community Presents

Welsh Kiki Ball

21 August 2021

Donald Gordon Theatre Stage

Originating in New York, ballroom culture has grown into a worldwide community with a flourishing UK scene in London, Edinburgh and Bristol. Join us for the first ball in Wales, ‘The Welsh Kiki Ball’.

In September 2020 the Welsh Ballroom Community  started a new ballroom scene in Cardiff with  guidance from members of the scene in London and the international community.

Ballroom is a culture and community pioneered by Crystal Labeija that prioritises and celebrates LGBTQ+ people of colour. Members of the community come together to compete in different categories at events called balls.

These categories showcase different talents, with probably the most well-known category being 'Vogue Fem' but there are hundreds of other categories at balls that showcase many different talents of competitors across fashion, beauty, sex appeal, dance and much more.

‘The Welsh Kiki Ball’ will consist of seven categories and if you're interested in walking, make sure you attend Welsh Ballroom Community’s regular sessions on Sundays. Head to Instagram @welshballroomcommunity for information.

This event is created as a queer safe(r) space and this community will be prioritised at all times. Anyone found to be disrespecting the space or culture will be asked to leave. Welsh QTIBIPOC to the front!
