Registration now open: Voguing for improvers (Course)
Voguing is a dance that emerged in the 70s and 80s in the ballroom scene of the POC and LGBTI culture of New York.
Madonna propelled it in 1990 into the mainstream with her hit "Vogue" . Voguing has been experiencing a renaissance in recent years and is rapidly becoming a mega trend worldwide. No wonder, because Voguing is fun and promotes self-confidence, as well as physical ability.
Voguing balls are important social places for the community. These are dance battles that take place between family-like communities, the "Houses". The Houses often carry brand names or names from pop culture, eg. House of Dior, House of Ninja, House of Xtravaganza, etc.
Our Voguing course is led by student activists of the Berlin Ballroom scene: Ariclenes Agostinho Garcia aka AriGato Melody is a member of the Berlin House of Melody and "Mother" of the Kiki House of Arise. Victoria is a member of the House of Arise. In the course, they both take turns and teach the basics of the most important styles of vogue, especially "fem Vogue," the most expressive style of all. But also runway, hands and face are taught.
The course is suitable for dancers with prior knowledge.
