In voguing, personal expression is the goal, and vogue fem one way to achieve it. Vogue Fem was created by Transwomen. Vogue fem is composed of five elements. In general voguing is an improvisational dance, part of Black social dance culture that emphasizes individuality and uniqueness.

It’s more than just moves, though, voguing’s history emphasizes validating the identities of everyone in the ballroom. In particular, vogue fem allowed trans women to embody their femininity, though many cis women and cis men now embrace the form as an outlet to express their femininity as well.

Ria is an artist, professional dancer, voguing choreographer and trans activist.

Ria started dancing at the age of 8 in Hip Hop, Dancehall and House, in 2015 she discovered Voguing. She specialised in Vogue Fem and Runway. Through being active in the ballroom scene, she won several awards and made a name for herself with the House of Melody, which has been active under the name House of Saint Laurent since 2019 and has left its mark on the ballroom scene in Germany. In August 2019 she moved from Düsseldorf to Berlin, where she is active as an artist in videos, magazines and at festivals. In her classes she emphasises the understanding of Ballroom culture, musicality and the understanding of one's own body.
