C'est CHIC Vogue Ball

Part of Nile Rodgers' Meltdown

Slide back in time to the swinging seventies for C’est CHIC Vogue Ball, co-curated by UK Prince Bam Bam Mulan 007 of the Kiki House of Mulan.

Generations have danced, vogued and posed to CHIC. Join the London ballroom scene at a Riverside Terrace takeover honouring CHIC’s back catalogue of disco glamour classics.

The ballroom scene grew to prominence in 1980s New York, pioneered by the queer Black and Latino community as a space for queer people of colour to congregate, dance and celebrate. London's ballroom scene has continued in this lineage, creating a safe space for new generations to find community and express themselves.

In a ball, competitors face off on the catwalk for ultimate glory. There are different categories, which are based on themes, skills and techniques.

For this year’s Meltdown we're taking you all the way back to CHIC’s heyday with categories including All-American Runway, Best-Dressed Spectator and a Drag Lip Sync.
