WERQ (pronounced “work”) is the wildly addictive cardio dance fitness workout based on the hottest pop and hip-hop music taught by Certified Fitness Professionals.

WERQ Hard. WERQ Together. Do Good. WERQ believes in working hard and giving back to the community and is excited to partner up with Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) to raise funds for this awesome organization! BBBS changes lives by helping children realize their potential and build their futures. Through BBBS charityWERQs, WERQaholics strengthen communities and bring people together to dance and raise money for a special cause.

WERQ also believes in playing hard - and that is exactly what we will do! We'll be shaking it up for Evansville's second annual charityWERQ with blacklight/glow lighting and decor, snacks, a heart-pounding, high-energy, family-friendly playlist, and your fellow WERQaholics. Silent auction too! Don't let the fun atmosphere fool you- this is a WORKOUT (or as we like to call it- a WERQout). Wear your neon workout clothes so you're sure to GLOW, workout shoes, bring a towel, and come ready to work up a sweat on the dance floor. Our event t-shirts will glow under black light, so be sure to register before the deadline to snag yours! Non-dancers and dancers alike will sweat to easy to follow, high-energy routines as visiting and area WERQ Instructors lead you through the movements. No previous WERQ experience is needed! Arrive ready to blast calories and stick around after for social time.


Additional Details 

  • Online tickets sales end 12pm Friday, April 17th.

*Postponed until further notice.*

Dear Friends,

We have, like each of you, been monitoring the national impact of the COVID-19 pandemic with heavy hearts. In the recent days, the increases in cancellation of services and necessary restrictions have made it clear to us that our April 18 charityWERQ date is not going to be possible. We regret to inform you that it is postponed until further notice. Once the possibility for a safe and fun glow dance party has been restored, we will inform you regarding a future date and time. Until then, we wish each of you safety in this time of uncertainty. We apologize for any inconvenience, and ask that you please pardon this decision that we never envisioned we would need to make.
