Creating Your Own Cabaret Act
"A great introduction to the art of cabaret. Supportive and creative atmosphere."
A hands-on course exploring all the elements of creating a successful cabaret act. The grand finale is a virtual showcase featuring individual mini-sets developed over the course of the class. Topics include: choosing material that’s right for you, song performance, what is patter and how to write it, designing your cabaret, and marketing your act. Students have the option of finding accompaniment tracks for their songs or using recorded piano accompaniments provided by The Theatre Lab (at no charge). Prerequisite: Previous experience as a solo vocalist. Come to the first class with two prepared songs to be sung a cappella or with a recorded accompaniment.
Online Class: Our March/April 2021 classes will take place entirely online via Zoom. Classes require live participation at the scheduled times using your own device. Zoom is most effective when used on a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet. Students using a cellphone to access class are likely to experience reduced functionality that may limit their ability to participate fully in class. Please review the technical requirements necessary to take part in an online class before enrolling. If these requirements pose any difficulties for you, please let us know.
Financial Aid: In an effort to make more classes financially accessible to students during the COVID-19 crisis, we are offering more financial aid than ever. If attending our courses at this time at full price would be difficult for you, please apply for assistance. Early Spring 2021 financial aid applications are due by February 22, 2021.
