Vogue is an influential dance form inspired by model poses in Vogue magazine and was popularized in New York City by queer people of color in the ’60s and ’70s. Vogue dancers have appeared in many music videos and contemporary pop performances, and in the 1990 documentary about drag culture, Paris is Burning.
