Beginners Vogue –  In this workshop participants will master the basic “5 Elements of Vogue” performance.

  1. Duckwalk: The duck walk receives its name from the appearance the name references (a duck walking) that involves squatting on your heels and kicking your feet out as you move forward on the beat.
  2. Catwalk: Catwalking is an exaggerated feminine walk where the legs are crossed over each other, the hips are thrust from side to side, and the hands are thrown forward in opposition to the legs.
  3. Hand Performance: In performance, the hands of the performer often told a story. This is the component of performing used to throw shade. For example, miming an expression of horror at the way the opponents face looks.
  4. Floor Performance: This component demonstrates the competitors’ sensuality as they roll, twist, and otherwise move on the ground in such a way as to capture the attention of the judges.
  5. Spins and Dips: This is the showiest component of vogue. These are the turns on beat, and the drops to the floor. A spin or dip is only done correctly when executed with the climax happening on the beat


2:00 – 3:00p

The Art of Vogue Performance – “Vogue Fem” is fluidity at its most extreme with exaggerated feminine movements influenced by ballet, jazz and modern dance. ranging from Dramatics (which emphasizes stunts, tricks, and speed) to Soft (which emphasizes a graceful, beautiful, and easy flow continuations between the five elements). Already mastered  “The 5 Elements of Vogue”?  In this workshop participants will take their basic knowledge off vogue movement and master the art of performing at a live Ball.
