About SirJoQ

Jocquese Whitfield (SirJoQ) is a dancer/choreographer/MC born and raised in San Francisco. They are the first Vogue instructor of San Francisco and has been teaching their Vogue & Tone classes since 2010. They first began their career in the improvisation of freestyle hip-hop, Jocquese has now added modern, classical, and Diasporic dance traditions over the last several years.

A shape-shifter, Jocquese challenges assumptions of sexual identity in dance as they play with both “masculine” and “feminine” aspects. Jocquese’s current movement vocabulary revisits the bold, rebellious statements of the 1980’s as expressed through fashion, nightlife, and a love of the abstract.

Jocquese currently teaches their Vogue & Tone classes at Dance Mission Theater (Mondays, 7-8:30PM, SF).
