About Vogue Femme
Vogue, or voguing, is a highly stylized, modern house dance originating in the late 1980s that evolved out of the Harlem ballroom scene of the 1960s. It gained mainstream exposure when it was featured in Madonna's song and video "Vogue" (1990), and in the 1990 documentary Paris Is Burning. Voguing incorporates five elements including duck walk, hand performance, spins & dips, catwalk and floor performance. Students should expect to focus on a different element each week. Students will also learn a choreographed combo with a focus on personal essence and musicality.
