*TODDLER NEW WAY
DIN DAA DAA DOE DOE DOE BAH!
When George Kranz released his drum solo hit "Trommeltanz" in 1983 he had no idea that Din Daa Daa will become one of the most sampled beats in ballroom. Last year at the BVO festival he finally got to see Voguers performing to his creation and it was great to witness how music inspires the performance and the other way around. Let's honor this very special Berliner and serve it inspired by one of his iconic looks from his video. Make sure to bring it 80ies style!

BEST DRESSED SPECTATOR - SPECTATORS ONLY
IF YOU DON'T LOOK GOOD, WE DON'T LOOK GOOD!
The Disco era had a major influence on dance music, club culture and fashion. Emerged in the early 70ies as an underground movement - once more born out of New York's African American & Latinx gay community - it was the forerunner for house music. Beside the public attention famous Disco performers like Gloria Gaynor, Sylvester, Donna Summer, the BEE GEES, The Best of Barry, Robin & Maurice Gibb. etc. garnered, DJ innovators and producers have played an important role in evolving Disco into House Music, forever shaping our today's club scene. Dress up for a glamorous night at Studio 54 full of escapism and promiscuity. Whether allover in sequins or half-naked - impress the Judges with your glamorous look and hedonistic attitude. Just leave the coke out! ;)

VOGUE TO EVERYTHING - OTA
This category is about voguing to different styles of music with a focus on adapting to the music but still showing a clear Vogue performance technique. Remember Vjuan Allure's words: "IT’S NEVER THE BEATZ… IT’S YOU!!" ;)

LET NO MAN PUT ASUNDER!
First Choice was an African American girl group that served soulful feminine Afro power. The trio was also influential to early House music since their songs have been sampled by many singers, DJs and producers. Their song "Let No Man Put Us Under" is a statement of pure empowerment and and the song became a club anthem for dancers, especially versions from Frankie Knuckles or the Ron Hardy Dub. Serve it inspired by their "Delusion" album cover in an all-white look.

For both categories serve it in a school uniform as a school girl or school boy, like the masked girls in the video.
