VOGUING & WAACKING
by Archie Burnett
About the workshop:
“Life is the Club. The Club in my days was the safe haven for all us ‘misfits’ that just didn’t fit in society’s mold. I was fortunate to realise that you can be ‘IN’ the scene, but not ‘OF’ the scene. All urban Dance is important and relevant. It is the voice of today’s youth as it was generations before. Because it is real, it will have real perils if one doesn’t pay attention. My quest, so to speak, is to share a little of my life with you and hope that one will enjoy the beauty of being connected in the spirit of being free.” Archie Burnett
Archie will guide a daily 4-hour class in which he will transmit elements of Voguing, Waacking, and Hustling. The focus of this class will be on proper posture, correct body vocabulary, motivation (meaning individual characterizations), the control of being in the moment, and organic musicality. Come, experience, get some and get lit!
An American New York dance culture created by Black and brown Gay youth, birthed as far back as the late 60’s, has emerged as an empowering and life changing force in these contemporary times. Be your fiercest you. The class will take you on a journey of discovery. Get to know YOUR beautiful. Experience change in a most fun, Physical and fascinating way. A lot of Love , A lot of History and a lot of letting it out! So come on down and LET THEM OUT!!!!
