Freep Film Festival says
In 1990, seven young dancers joined pop star Madonna on her most controversial world tour. Wild, talented and barely 20 years old, the dancers set out on the trip of a lifetime, their journey captured in "Truth or Dare," one of the highest-grossing documentaries ever. As a self-proclaimed mother to her six gay dancers (plus straight Oliver), Madonna used the film to take a stand on gay rights, freedom of expression and the fight against AIDS. Madonna’s flamboyant dancers became icons of sexual freedom, inspiring people all over the world. "Strike a Pose" not only captures their impact, but provides glimpses behind the scenes – where the dynamics were not always as graceful as they appeared onstage.

After the film: Jose Gutierez Xtravaganza, a dancer and choreographer featured in the film, talks to the Detroit Free Press' Ashley Woods and demonstrates Voguing.

Vogue Workshop: At 1 p.m. Sun., April 1, join Jose Xtravaganza, for a Vogue workshop at the Boll Family YMCA. Tickets are $25. Purchase tickets at
