Strike a pose! Vouguin and whacking in Barcelona with Archie Burnett

From the legendary House of Ninja, Archie Burnett will come directly form NYC to introduce old way vogue, new way vogue, and vogue femme.

During the four hours of each session, 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.

Voguing is a style developed in the 1980ies and is characterized by poses, similar to the ones of photo model poses with some influences from the Harlem ballrooms of the 1930ies. Characteristics are formation of lines, symmetry, and precision in the execution of such formations and graceful, fluid-like action.

Archie Burnett is a highly respected underground club dancer in New York City who was one of the prime dancers during the late 70s and 80s, becoming well known for his individual freestyle of Waacking and Voguing. He was a close friend and assistant of the grandfather of Voguing, the legend Willi Ninja, and is up until now a striving force in the NYC dance scene. He is invited as a judge for battles, such as for the "Funky Stylez" 2009 a.o. He appears in the documentary film "Check Your Body at the Door" (2001) by Dr. Sally Sommer, (Professor of Dance at Florida State University), that explores the movement vocabulary of legendary NYC house dancers, including Archie Burnett, Willi Ninja, Ejoe Wilson, Marjory Smarth and Conrad Rochester. Made possible in part by contributions from the National Endowment of the Arts, Dr. Sommer interviews dancers from the local NYC scene and captures now-vintage footage from the late 1980s and early 1990s. "Check Your Body at the Door" now stands as an historical document and testament to the early years of NYC's house dance culture.
