Get your glow gear ready, it's time for Evansville's fifth-annual Glow for Kids' Sake charityWERQ benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters of SW Indiana! This year's theme is Money Mayhem. That's right, it's all about the Benjamin's, so make sure you bring your dolla-dolla bills, y'all! We're going to WERQ hard, and play hard too!

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 the fifth-annual Glow for Kids' Sake charityWERQ with blacklight/glow lighting and decor, games, snacks, a heart-pounding, high-energy 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 gear so you're sure to GLOW while we 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 get 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 or dance experience is needed! Arrive ready to blast calories, play games, and walk away with your favorite silent auction items!
