About the project

House of Suarez are an innovative dance group that produces theatrical character-based pieces, using choreography to tell stories. The project’s regional Vogue Balls featured two major dance and theatre events in Liverpool and Manchester, which complimented other Vogue Dance works created during workshops with local communities and dance groups. The project aimed to raise awareness of gay culture through exploring the vogue dance phenomenon that was popularised in the subculture of gay club scenes in the 70s and 80s.

Funding from the National Lottery covered the costs of artists’ fees, travel expenses, venue hire, costumes, technical equipment and resources for the performances. Participation in the Vogue Balls has enabled young and often socially excluded people from diverse backgrounds, such as young LGBT and economically disadvantaged young people, to showcase their talents in a range of art-forms, including dance, choreography, costume design, make-up and styling.

The project was hugely popular, with a total of 281 people attending creative workshops, and 120 people taking part in the Balls, that were watched by over a thousand people.
