Bounce Meets Vogue (worth the jump, just click.)
In the latest film to be premiered on NOWNESS.com, two iconic modern dance disciplines come together for the first time as part of the One Million Square Feet of Culture (1MSQFT) event in New Orleans. Bounce and Vogue are the disciplines on display – breaking the mould by going head to head in competition. Bounce music, stemming from New Orleans, is like a hyper-energetic Baltimore club sound, and so it obviously lends itself to twerking. Vogue is known first and foremost as being a gay movement, although this is changing, according to New York’s voice of the ballroom Jack Mizrahi. “We’re enjoying the synergy right now, to finally have a battle against bounce—a couple of weeks ago it was breakdancing vs. vogue. It’s become it’s own dance spectacle.” Whatever your thoughts are on the movement, there’s no denying its energy.
