KLASSENBESCHRIEB

VOGUE (NEW WAY) originated from the underground gay club culture of New York City, with roots going all the way back to the 1930's Harlem. The dance got international recognition via Madonnas "Vogue" and the documentary "Paris is Burning", and is today growing from the "ballroom scene" out to the world. In the class I will share my knowledge and experience from my training, going through the 5 elements of Voguing (Hand performance, Runway, Floor performance, Duckwalks, Dips&Spins) and through drills and guidance offer the right technique in order to build a solid foundation. The class is open to anyone and focus is always on the LOVE of dance and for you to enjoy yourself, don't come to impress - come to grow and SHARE.
