Jay Jay Revlon’s Voguing Workshop

Jay Jay has become a major force in the London dance scene where he is credited with being instrumental to the rise of London’s voguing scene and has created the modern dance house the Kiki House of Tea and leading ballroom collective, English Breakfast London.

Described by Time Out as “one to watch”, DJ and dancer Jay Jay Revlon shuts down the Roundhouse with the ultimate Voguing Workshop. Bring your heels, lay on the glitter and prepare to strut your stuff.

Jay Jay has used his love of vogue to establish inclusive and diverse events including the massively popular Let’s Have a Kiki birthed at private member’s club The Curtain Hotel, Now been brought to his community in Peckham at The Prince of Peckham and workshops at The Tate Britain & Southbank Centre. Jay Jay has also used vogue as a form of social activism, this was seen last year where hundreds of Londoners saw him pay tribute to the victims of the Orlando shooting at a vigil on Old Compton Street.
