Vogue or "Voguing" is a dance form and culture, understanding this phenomenon requires a "sickening" synthesis of elements. Voguing is the most popularized element which has its roots in ballroom culture. This performance workshop will teach a comprehensive lesson on the culture and culminate with a "Mini Ball". Ballroom Basics will explore: the foundations of Voguing (hand performance, runway, duckwalks, dips & spins), grand march, themes, categories, judging, MCing, etiquette and how to engage as a fabulous spectator. Will you WerQ? Punish? or Destroy? Catoretory closed.
