About this Event

Vogue: A style birthed from the underground drag culture of New York City, and raised by House music; VOGUE dance is a style that strives to find ones individuality and self confidence. Since its conception the style has evolved from Old Way, into New Way, and Vogue Femme. Being a freestyle dance form, some key elements of VOGUE are: Runway, Posing, Hand Performance, Dips, Floor Performance, Duck Walk and Cat Walk. It is famously popularized by artist Madonna in the music video - "Vogue" and since then artist such as Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Azealia Banks and most recently FKA Twigs have used vogue as a source of inspiration.

Ralph Escamillan is a queer, Canadian-Filipinx performance artist/choreographer/teacher and community leader based in Vancouver, BC. His arsenal of performance skills include a variety of street dance styles, ballroom, contemporary, circus, and drag. He graduated after 4 years in Modus Operandi, Vancouver’s contemporary dance training program, in 2015. He’s apprenticed with Kidd Pivot and worked with Vancouver companies: Company 605, Co.Erasga Dance, Kinesis Dance Somatheatro, Out Innerspace Theatre and is currently on contract with Wen Wei Dance. In the commercial industry, hes worked with choreographers including AJ Aakomon, Luther Brown, Paul Becker and Tucker Barkely, as well as artists Victoria Duffield and Zendaya Coleman, and was a guest dancer for Janet Jackson’s “Unbreakable” tour in 2015.
