The New Vogue Dance Style is an Australian form of sequence dancing that originated in the 1930s. Since then it has become an important part in the ballroom scene not just in Australia but is extremely popular in New Zealand, holding as much importance in social and competition dancing as Latin American Dance or International Standard (ballroom) dances.
There are a large number of New Vogue Dances, although only a handful are common. All New Vogue Dances are based on a sequence of dance steps which are continually repeated, usually until the dance music ends. The dance sequences are always either 16 or 32 bars long, and require dance music that is in turn “sequenced” (composed of verses that are either 16 or 32 bars long).
