Every Monday 6pm-11:30pm
Join us each and every Monday for Vogue Rites – A club night for the London Ballroom scene and their friends. Vogue Rites is London’s only weekly Ballroom night, providing an inclusive and supportive space for people who want to be part of Ball culture.
Ballroom is an intentional space for Queer/Trans People of Colour. Popularised by one of its many competitive categories – Voguing, a dance-based art form with rhythmic posing – Ballroom is a culture created by Black and Latinx LGBT communities from the Harlem drag balls dating back over 150 years. Houses are family units that are formed as support networks, with parents of each House guiding & caring for their children, and as teams to compete together at Balls.
If you are not from this community – you are a spectator of this culture – please be mindful of the space you take up. Do not push to the front to take photos or videos, do not stand in the way of performers or house members.
If you would like to participate, make sure you understand completely what each category means before entering.
As an ally or spectator, the best way you can show your support and appreciation for the ballroom community is by buying drinks at the bar. This helps make it possible for us to continue providing spaces like this.
