Hey hey hey Collective Family!! Please join the JeSuisNiiLee Mutual Aid Collective, in honor of Pride Month, as we partner with Icon, Overall Father of The House of Alpha Omega, Renaldo Maurice. Renaldo will instruct a Vogue Class that will awaken your creativity through movement & understanding through education. This class will be held this Saturday at 1pm and is open to all levels of experience. Visit our events tab here to donate and purchase your ticket.

Vogue - a highly stylized, modern house dance originating in the late 1980s that evolved out of the Harlem Ballroom Scene of the 1960s. Many are enamored by the precise, daring & elegant movements of the dance, yet most don’t understand how Vogue is embedded into the very fabric of LGBTQIA+ liberation. Vogue performance has allowed queer folk the ability to not only express movement in a way like no other, but like their true selves. Ballroom culture is queer culture.

"Dip Into Vogue: Culture, Survival, Freedom of Expression” - an event where various communities will be enlightened - not only on the elements of Vogue, but its necessity for a communities’ livelihood. We celebrate Pride in New York to pay hommage to queer history that took place at Stonewall that then became the beginning of an era known as the "Gay Civil Rights Movement".
