About Vogue

Vogue, or Voguing, is a highly stylized, modern house dance originating in the late 1980's which evolved out of the Harlem ballroom scene of 1960's America. Developed and performed by LGBTQIA+ people of colour to create and own their own space it has grown to become a celebration of their culture. Gaining mainstream exposure through documentary film "Paris is Burning" and song and video "Vogue" by Madonna in 1990, vogue culture continues to inspire artists today with Vogue Houses performing the style across the world.

Who is it for? Suitable for all levels.

What should I wear? Category is..."Comfortable Fashionista!" Whilst Voguing is all about expressing yourself and bringing life to the catwalk, we suggest wearing comfortable clothing that's easy to move in and comfortable non-marking shoes.

What should I bring? Plenty of Water
