Audience Sung and danced along in the aisles to hits including Like A Virgin, Papa Don’t Preach and Vogue and get drawn into the backstage dramas, on stage dance routines, deep-throating of water bottles and watching Madge fool around with her gay dancers.

The best dressed Madonnas was picked pre-screening in the Rio foyer to compete in an on-stage Vogue Off to be crowned Queen of Pop (for the night). Dress code: Material Girls, Breathless Mahoneys, Gays Gone Wild…

DANCE CLASS

Voguing was a dance class led by the fabulous Nathaniel Parchment. It is a highly stylized, modern house dance that evolved out of the Harlem ballroom scene in the 1960s. It gained mainstream exposure when it was featured in Madonna’s video “Vogue” in 1990, and when showcased in the 1990 documentary Paris is Burning.
