Voguing's just like riding a bike: sure you haven't done it since 1994, but once you start it all comes back to you. Bounce Ballroom, the party that kicks off the Red Bull Music Academy, at the Brooklyn Bazaar will showcase four exemplary performances of the underground sounds and dance styles that made New York the pinnacle of nightlife.
Tracing the history of the city's club culture from the 1980s through to today, Bounce Ballroom will feature Housing, Voguing, Flexing, and Jersey Club as performed by dance crews who've mastered their chosen technique. Sprawled out over four rooms, each will house a party tailored to each style--complete with a corresponding dance crew and DJ marshaling the party.
While Housing, Flexing, and Jersey Club are all sites to behold--you really should meander over to those rooms during the course of the night--it's the Voguing that's going to be the big draw.
