Vogue wigs is characterized by model – like poses with angular, linear, and rigid arm, leg, and body movements. This style of dance arose from Harlem ballrooms by African Americans and Latino Americans. It was originally called “presentation” and later “performance”, but over the years the dance has evolved into ta more intricate and illusory form.
There are vogue wigs also formal competitions that occur in the form of balls held by “houses”. Some renowned houses include the House of Garcon, the House of Icon, the House of Khanh, the House of Evisu, the House of Karan, the House of Omni, the House of Aviance, and the House of Legacy.
There are three styles of vogue: the old way (pre – 1990), the new way (post – 1990), and vogue femme (circa 1995).
The vogue wigs is characterized by the formation of lines, symmetry, and precision in the execution of formations with graceful action. Many of the old way inspiration comes from the Egyptian hieroglyphs. Historically, vogue used to be a duel between two rivals. The old way rules dictate that one rival must “pin” the other to win the contest. Pinning usually involved the trapping of the opponent so that he or she could not preform any more movements while the other competitor was still in motion.
The New vogue wigs is characterized by rigid movements coupled with “clicks” and “arms control” illusions. New way can also be described as a modified form of mime in which imaginary geometric shapes are introduced during motion and moved progressively around the dancer’s body to display the dancer’s dexterity and memory.
Vogue femme is fluidity at the most extreme with exaggerated movements influenced by ballet and modern dance. Styles of vogue femme performance range from dramatics style (which emphasizes stunts, tricks, and speed) to soft style vogue wigs (which emphasizes a graceful easy flow). There are six elements of vogue femme: hand performance, catwalk, duckwalk, floor performance, dips, and spins.
