The Voguettes – Voguing Workshop
If you haven’t already heard about VOGA it’s a lifestyle brand fusing Yoga and Voguing; fitness and fashion, set to an iconic 80’s beat and designed to empower.
Voguing originated as a highly stylised dance form on the NYC ballroom scene in the 1980s. It gave its mostly marginalised participants a sense of empowerment and confidence through striking dramatic and expressive poses resembling poses from fashion editorials and Egyptian hieroglyphs.
VOGA draws on this to create a vogue-inspired dance class or stage performance to empower and engage everyone involved with an all-encompassing visual and sensual experience. It dramatises Vogue gesture, celebrating the feminine, free expression, body confidence and individual style.
The Voguettes’ growing team of 14 (all VOGA, yoga and dance trained, with unique individual prowess) are based in London, Europe, Australia and the USA, and focused on making you feel fabulous with slick moves and VOGA sass for your entertainment. The Voguettes are available individually or as a group experience. Expect 80’s inspired fashion, DJs spinning diva beats and power moves.
From Little Gay Brother stage at Lovebox; to Secret Garden Party’s most talked about stage, Palais de Boob; to sunset DJ-led sets on Sailbeats private yachts in BCN, Greece and Croatia; to VOGA on surfboards in Morocco with Amayour; to Austrian snow-capped mountaintops striking a pose with Mr Motivator at Snowbombing; to nightlife cool at Yoga Connects Festival and Obonjan; to party vibes at Vans 50th Anniversary in Mexico City; to rooftop opening cocktail parties at Soho House, Istanbul; to window posing in Lululemon’s shop front windows on Oxford Street for Vogue Night Out; to intermittent shop floor stage shows for Elle Fashion at Selfridges; to appearances on Channel 4s How to be a Socialite and Made in Chelsea. The Voguettes have performed in many weird and wonderful places with some fantastic artists and DJs. Whether its running a dance-fuelled stage performance or a crowd-participating VOGA session, they will be sure to get the audience connected, hyped and inspired.
VOGA was created by Juliet Murrell “after the illuminating moment that life can be everything you want it to be. Free your mind, combine your passions.” Juliet and House of VOGA has appeared in 9 global Vogue magazines and would now like the Voguettes as a new force to take the limelight.
VOGA is above all versatile and can be day or night-time proposition; waking you up to fierce family fun or bringing you nightlife cool from the world of sweat and Lycra. The Voguettes offer a constant flow of moves and poses for a power hour of fun which can be adapted to your proposal.
