This paper examines how dance is used in both the Hasidic and Voguing cultures as an expression of individual identity. A discussion of each culture’s history, use of clothing and approach to gender identity is included, as is an analysis of their unique dance customs, movement styles and use of three-dimensional space. This provides a context for an examination of how dance structures, supports and strengthens the role of the individual within both the Hasidic and Voguing cultures while firmly anchoring them within their respective communities.
