Voguing dream

I seem to be having more dreams about voguing than any other kind of dancing in my life so far.  Now, I’ve decided to begin to catalog and record these dreams in a journal.


Last night in the mountains out west – with tumbling clouds, jagged mountain peak, outlines in the horizon-line – a voguer is approaching as weather tumbling in. Approaching with menace – fever. He appears like a cut-out in the sky. Moves like molten lava, liquid lightning. Arms bolting. Fierce and razor sharp edges. Blade-like liquefying into the metal they arose from.

He is a liquid electric bolt, streaking across space, with jaw tight and eyes penetrating.

Whipping the air into tight unbroken lines, so fast they are bending, folding, collapsing.

At speeds too fast to detect.

Vogue lighting


Ice breaking

A tangle of lines, bending

The sky going up in flames behind the pace of lines.

Voguing/Alexander cont…

A couple weeks ago, I injured my shoulder practicing.  It’s been the first time in my 1 1/2 year study of voguing that I’ve hurt myself.  I’m now healing – learning – applying the process of the Alexander Technique to my observations of how I’ve been using my shoulder.  Through this practice of taking on a new dance form, I am re-learning principles from the Alexander Technique.

The planes of the shoulder girdle must be intentionally aligned to the direction of the movement

Allow the shoulder girdle to move freely off the rib cage – let it lift, glide, mobilize

Move the arms from the ground.  Root yourself/connect to the power in your stance and feet.  Vogue always has a stance.

The attitude in vogue comes from the head moving forward and up.  If the spine pushes forward (for stylized effect)- you must keep a thrust of energy moving up from the feet and through the whole length of the body.

Tomorrow I venture back to class.  Intrigued.

Voguing/Alexander Technique

For the past 1 1/2 years, I’ve fallen in love with voguing and have been studying intensively with Archie Burnett, and more recently Benny Ninja.  This study has run parallel to my own practice of the Alexander Technique.  What I’ve so far discovered is that voguing is an oppositional language – the energy must thrust out and flow back in.  The vertical line must run powerfully from the ground upward through the body.   And you must be connected organically to yourself, and in the moment to how it is you feel about yourself.  It is a freestyle form, guided by your own identity and expression. 

It is also about composing and making decisions. Lining up your intention with what you are doing, so you aren’t lost inside what is happening. It is lining up yourself, inside your environment, to your focus, and your rhythmic sense – simultaneously. It’s having opposition from your center to your arms, and being motivated to move from the ground – with the back in opposition. It isn’t about collapsing – unless that is done intentionally.

Javier Ninja from the legendary House of Ninja demonstrates New Way Vogue.
