Paris is Voguing
Gabrielle Culand

Lasseindra Ninja and Stéphane Mizrahi are two French pioneers of Voguing, a dance created in the 1970s within the gay community of Harlem, NYC. Their mission is to transmit this part of queer culture to the youth of the French suburbs by teaching their "children" to dance, to be elegant, but also to be proud.
