About the Workshop

Trailblazer Legendary Mother Leo Saint Laurent invites everyone over 35 to learn more about Ballroom and Voguing.  The Ballroom scene is a culture from New York, founded by Black and Latinx trans women in the 60/70s in New York. As this space was founded by and for people affected by discrimination, the physical form of expression cannot be separated from the activist and social work within/outside the Ballroom community.
The workshop will provide a basic understanding of the different performance types and categories in Ballroom, such as Vogue Fem, New Way, Old Way and Runway and Face. The training begins with a warm-up consisting of stretching and strengthening exercises, as well as elements and concepts that are essential in Ballroom such as posing. The exploration of the different categories is based on basic technique exercises and drills, and conceptual freestyle exercises.  High heels are welcome for some styles, otherwise sneakers are recommended. Beginners and non-dancers are very Welcome.
BIPOC and queers are especially invited to participate, but the workshop is open to all. Acceptance of BIPOC and queer people is assumed, as this is the origin of ballroom culture.
