The Sprockettes is an all-ladies synchronized mini-bike dance troupe.
In a basic sense it is our mission to entertain audiences by choreographing dances while using our bikes in our performance.
In a broader sense, it is our mission to:
-Support and interact with the community around us.
-Advocate bicycle riding.
-Empower and inspire people to live out their crazy and wildest dreams, therefore embracing the badassocity of life and living their full potential.
-Promote positive self-image for all body types, offering an alternative to the dangerous mono-culture of what the ideal body type is; and promote female positive perspective that celebrates women's empowerment.
-Encourage, exercise, movement, health, and pro-physical lifestyle.
-Organize and operate our dance troupe in a collective fashion.
The Sprockettes began in the spring of 2004 when a pioneering group of ladies decided to put together a performance for the Multnomah County Bike Fair. The crowd response was so positive and we had so much fun that we thought it would be rad to stay together and see where it would take us.
Since then, we've performed from San Francisco to Vancouver B.C., toured in a veggie oil powered bus, held workshops and skill shares, received national media recognition and inspired international bike dance teams.
The journey of the Sprockettes has been amazing, held together by our passion for dancing, bicycles, DIY ideology, and striving to promote a healthy body image.
Our members are an eclectic group of women: we are teachers, artists, gardeners, social workers, musicians, mothers, bankers, nannies, writers, dancers and students.
We work as a collective choreographing, practicing, making merchandise and performing. We are constantly evolving.
