Pony Sweat

Pony Sweat is a "fiercely non-competitive" dance aerobics celebration! It's a high-energy hour of dance exercise set to music reminiscent of a favorite mixtape from a friend. Pony Sweat is a practice in radical self-acceptance, anti-perfectionism, and getting out of your own way. Continuing with the help of such musical saviors as Siouxsie Sioux, Whitney Houston, Peaches, Beyonce, and Bikini Kill (to name a few) our goal is to take care of ourselves, take care of each other, allow music to move us, cultivate expression, and sweat our faces off!

$10 at the door, cash or venmo. Wear your sneaks and whatever you want to move in, COME AS YOU ARE ALL WAYS ALWAYS!
