Garland Gravely founded House of Expression in 2019. Part of the global ballroom culture that’s grown over the past century, the house structure emerged in the 1970’s in New York City.
On October 23rd, the House of Expression will host SWVA’s first mini-ball. Listen to our conversation with Garland Gravely to learn about the creative expression, supportive culture, and just what’s behind “realness” in Roanoke’s emerging ballroom culture. “In the House of Expression, it’s family first,” says Gravely. “We want to do what’s best for the family and the community.”
