Balter Dance Party (for People Who Are Afraid to Dance)
Balter (v.) to dance artlessly, without particular grace or skill but usually with enjoyment. This event is a no judgement zone for people who don't dance in public because they feel awkward or clumsy.
This event grew directly out of a breakthrough experienced by trauma survivor and party organizer Michael Broussard. After decades of being too insecure and afraid to dance due to PTSD, he made a breakthrough and reconnected with his 6-year-old self, the kid who felt free to dance and laugh and smile without fear.
The Balter Dance Party is a true come-as-you-are party: T-Shirt and Jeans, Prom Wear, Cosplay, Drag, Steampunk, wear whatever makes you feel comfortable.
