As it pertains to our group dance project, I could not be happier with the outcome. I am on a team of like-minded people who all strive for success while also knowing how to enjoy the experience. Kloe, Nick, Maddie, and myself connected within the first few days of the course, united by our own novice background in ballroom dance. As our skill set grew, so did our companionship, and we were eager to work cooperatively on this final project. We were a bit worried when everyone was called to split…

I guess so.
Hmm. So who are you going with? Just the girls?
Yeah...You'll laugh, Kelli suggested I should go with you.
I've got a boyfriend.
So? It doesn't have to be a date. We could just go as friends.
Ok. I guess.
Plus, I'm a hell of a dancer.
Latina girlfriend a few years back. She made me learn. Can't really do classic ballroom, but I can salsa like you wouldn't believe.

Its origins date back to the 1930’s in the underground LGBT ballroom scene, where it was known as “performance.” Voguing was mostly done in ‘houses’, which are family-like collectives of members of the LGBT community, one of the most popular being The House of Xtravanganza in New York City (the mecca of voguing). Here, the dancers would strike poses…
