Vogueing emerged around 70’s from the ballroom culture in Harlem, New York. Ballroom culture created a safe space for the Black and Latino LGBTQ-community for free self-expression, self-love and self-acceptance.
From the three main performance categories this class focuses on New Way Vogue. The main elements in New Way are posing and arms control consisting of angular, liner and rigid arm, leg and body movements and powerful, impressive and contortionist poses.
This class serves as a good introduction to the style. The most important thing in voguing is to find your body's way to move and express itself and this is also what we aim to explore in this class. The class consists of a warm-up and technique -section after which we approach freestyle through different exercises.
