From Harlem, New York to West Sydney, Artists Jamaica Moana and Father Xander Silky bring the essence of ballroom to Casula Powerhouse through “The West Ball 3”.
Merging local western Sydney culture with the underground ballroom subculture from NYC, created by black and brown trans women, the West Ball 3 is a pioneering event of celebration of love, inclusion and self-expression out west.
A wonderful event celebrating the diversity of the Australian ballroom community, which is predominately led by POC, Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander LGBTIQ+ communities from Western Sydney. To accompany the event will be a display of previous gowns and costumes from previous Balls, capturing some of the incredible energy of the Western Sydney Ballroom community.
The West Ball is in its third year as an annual event, and 2022 will be the most ambitious yet. In the last few years, the vogue/ballroom scene has expanded on such a large scale with TV shows like POSE and the competition reality show LEGENDARY. The Australian Ballroom community was founded in Western Sydney and has grown with the leadership of two of the most renowned members of the community Jamaica Slé and Father Xander Silky with notable shout-outs from the international community in support of them and the event - “I love Australia! It’s one of my favourite ballroom scenes. Ya’ll aren’t ready for what’s coming out of that country,” said Dashaun Wesley, Host of Legendary and actor who plays Shadow Wintour on Pose.
This year we are going to Livestream the event so that it remains accessible to everyone. The Livestream will allow all those who couldn’t make it in person to connect, have fun and join the ball from wherever you are across the world. Once you have booked your ticket to the live stream, you will receive the link directly to your email 72 hours before the event commences.
