WHAT IS A VOGUE CLASS?
I will be teaching the art of vogue -- an empowering dance that utilizes real life experiences to create your own persona. Voguing is a tool to let you know just how strong and beautiful you are, on the dancefloor or in everyday life. Techniques we will cover are how to do a runway walk, pose for the camera, and dance moves that will emphasize your best assets.
HOW WILL YOU LEARN TO VOGUE?
Following warm-up and a vogue history lesson, we will analyze fashion magazines to understand the essence of posing/runway and bringing a 2 dimensional photo to life. After breaking down some elements of vogue, we will string them together in a short sequence to challenge the body and mind.
WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS CLASS?
Anyone who wishes to boost their confidence, become empowered through movement/body awareness and have a great time!

"I experienced my first DangerKat Dance Class two Wednesdays ago and had the most incredible time! Kaiti's style is fresh to death and she is patient with beginners (like myself). If you really want to try something new and different, come join this party! Rest assured: no judgments." -Danny V.
"I love to dance, but have never really taken an organized dance class before. I showed up alone not knowing anyone and felt a little nervous...but I had the time of my life. The atmosphere and music made shakin' it irresistible! Kaiti has an incredible ability to teach. She can make the beginners feel welcome and have them learning at a great pace, while at the same time she challenges and pushes the more advanced students." -Amber J.

I have been a student of dance for 24 years and a teacher for over 10 years. I am a classically trained dancer, but found my true passion in urban/club/cultural styles such as Hip Hop, House, Voguing, Waacking, Dancehall, West African, Popping, Locking etc. I am fortunate to work as a performer and DJ where it is my duty to inspire people let go and have fun, which is an energy you will experience in my class. I LOVE teaching people of all levels as I believe everyone has something pure, creative and positive to share.
