Back by popular demand, Darren Pritchard (Mother of The House of Flava) returns to Yorkshire Dance to Vogue.
This highly stylised form of dance was created by the black and latino LGBTQ+ community in Harlem, New York. Emerging from the club scene of the 80s, participants of Vogue are encouraged to explore the representation of, and free themseleves from, gender-normative roles.
In this workshop you will have the opportunity to explore the moves of Vogue – spinning, dipping, and werqqqqing to achieve a short piece of choreography.
As well as discovering Ballroom culture and voguing, you will also learn the history and context of the art form, and the fundamentals of Vogue Femme.Back to all eventsBack to Encounters Festivals
