Vogue Dance Workshop and Forum
This dance workshop will run from 2pm to 4pm on Saturday October 27th, 2012.
This style of dance arose from the Harlem ballroom culture in the early 1930's, originally called "performance" and evolving into the more intricate, illusory form that is now called "Vogue" or "Vogue-ing". This dance style continues to challenge boundaries and attract interest as it remains on the cutting edge of urban dance. Get ready to work your hand performances, duckwalks, spins and dips in this tribute dance workshop & informational forum.
