Life is a Cabaret! So bring out your inner Christina and join us in the spotlight!
In our Cabaret/Modern Burlesque dance course you will be taught stylish and sexy choreography inspired by famous cabaret venues from all over the world. From the Moulin Rouge in Paris to the Tropicana in Cuba, you will learn a variety of dance styles that will transform you into a true Cabaret Showgirl.You will be taught a number of sassy routines, delving into both the old and the new, with classic moves from famous musicals (such as the incredible Bob Fosse pieces from Cabaret and All That Jazz), as well as venturing into modern styles made famous by more recent Hollywood productions such as Chicago and Burlesque.

You will even learn to incorporate props into the choreography of some routines such as chairs, feather boas, top hats and canes. Your instructor will teach you all the tricks of the trade!

At the end of every term you will have the opportunity to perform the routines you have learnt in a real-life cabaret show (this is entirely optional), with one massive performance at the end of the year on the big theatre stage! Get those feathers, glitter and sequins ready!
