"When I was first introduced to the style of vogue there was hardly anyone doing it, and from what I saw I was not impressed. From a young age I had always been fascinated with the dance form and seeing what I saw in real life I was not fascinated. I was at an age where I was still trying to find myself and find my dance language. So I said to myself "I am going to learn this dance form, practice, train and educate myself so hard that I will be known for being the best voguer in London and the face of London voguing. After 2 years of transforming into this fierce, fabulous diva I was contacted by the Mother himself Princess Magnifique Royalty, of the Legendary, Iconic, New York House Of Magnifique and asked to join and become a member of the house. Now we are here in 2015 and I am the face of voguing in London."
This is an introductory workshop to Voguing, explaining the foundations of the style, going through the 5 elements and learning how to pose, WERK the runway, and embrace how Voguing is a celebration of individuality and being free to express yourself, without judgement. Owning it.
