DRIPPIN' WITH SWEAT is a monthly dance/workout event presented by choreographers Monica Mark and Rory Davis. Designed for non-dancers, the class is 'flash mob' style routines set to 80's classics and one-hit-wonders. Dancers are encouraged to dress in vintage workout gear and sing along. Combining theater, dance, exercise and drag, DRIPPIN' WITH SWEAT has become the "can't-miss" dance class in the Bay Area.
