Strike A Pose



Op wat Studio 80 kids na betrap ik de mannenlievende gemeenschap in Damsco vooral van het losgaan op eeuwige hits van The Weathergirls en Sabrina. Jammer, want in de VS luistert de gaymmunitie naar dit. Heavy oorlogsdrums en agressieve en seksistische lyrics, het is eigenlijk gewoon club music. Fuckin dope.

Vogue: 'Vogue is a form of modern dance characterized by photo model like poses integrated with angular, linear and rigid arm, leg and body movements. The style of dance arose from the Harlem ballrooms back in the early 1930s, which was then called "performance" and evolved into the more intricate and illusory form that is now called "vogue".

Voguing has evolved since its beginning and continues to be developed further as an established dance form that is practiced in gay dance clubs in New York, and other big cities throughout the United States.'


En daarom houden homo's van Madonna.

Een goede film om te kijken schijnt Paris Is Burning te zijn (hier in 11 delen op Youtube). Iemand die me up kan hooken met wat tracks of namen van producers?

  2. Mmm kleine aanpassing dit is een Wacking/Punking video. Kleine update:

    PUNKING
    A style born in the 1970s in the LA underground club scene. Punking was first seen in Gay underground nightclubs (discotheques) of Hollywood. The dance came into the mainstreeam as many professional dancers at the time started performing it on television (Soul Train) and various stages from Hollywood to Las Vegas. Punking dancers include; Billy Goodson, Tinker, (R.I.P.) Lanny and Aka Micheal Angelo, Adolfo 'Shabba Doo' Quinones, as well as female and male dancers from Dancing Machine which was created in 1975 by Jeff Kutach who later created a show called Splash in Las Vegas. You could also see it performed in the 70s and early 80s by the group Dancing machine, members were Stever 'Sugarfoot' Notario, Gino, Dino, SugarBop, Fast Freddy, Topaz Lanette, Diane, Flame, Dallas and Ana 'Lollipop' Sanchez.

    WACKING
    Styles of dance from the streets and clubs were taken into the music and media world. The world saw a fusion of dances merged into effortless sequences.

    Wacking is the name that some of the soul train dancers started using instead of the initial term 'punking'. Toby, Jeffrey Daniel, Jody Watley (Shalamar) was trained by Tyrone Proctor (Soul Train dancer) who she credits with her 'Diva' training. All were known to have performed Wacking.
    Some would say that punking was the original true underground term for the style and that wacking or whacking came later as the dance became more mainstream.

    Maarre dope dat je het oppikt ;-)

  6. Jaren geleden heb ik een docu op tv (publieke omroep) gezien over dit soort feestjes in NYC. Geen flauw idee hoe die docu heette of waar je hem kan vinden. Maar toch, dit wilde ik even met jullie delen.
