People also associate voguing apart of waacking. When people think Vogue, we think of Madonna. Madonna has used a lot of voguing techniques in her older style of music, such as her song “Vogue” that was released in 1990. Whacking is a style of old school  hip hop and funk. Its a dance style that can be used by anybody. it doesn’t matter if one is gay, straight, black or white. Waacking is that dance style that brings everyone together.
