The Old Way
Characterized by the formation of lines, symmetry, and precision
in the execution of formations with graceful, fluid-like action.
Egyptian hieroglyphs and fashion poses serve as the original inspirations for old way voguing.
In its purest, historical form, old way vogue is a duel between two rivals.
Traditionally, old way rules dictated that one rival must "pin" the other to win the contest.
Pinning involved the trapping of an opponent so that he or she could not execute any movements while the adversary was still in motion (usually voguing movements with the arms and hands called "hand performance" while the opponent was "pinned" against the floor doing "floor exercises" or against a wall)
