About The Event

Welcome to the Cabaret Laboratory, where we explore and expand our understanding and presentation of performance through a cabaret lens.

This fall we have two 6-week series available, a 4-week bootcamp, and a few specialty classes! All classes are held at Evergreen Spaces in the MAPLE Studio.

Please note the start time of your class! Showpass will give a generic start time and date based on the overall event - not the ticket purchased.

Burlesque Foundations Sundays from 7:00 to 8:00PM October 15 to November 19, 2023


This intensive is directed towards brand new performers, performers new to the burlesque art form, and burlesque performers with some experience looking to strengthen their foundational understanding and process. This series will focus on basic burlesque movements, local and international history, and how to build a routine. This class will be led by Bea Lissima with other guest instructors.

Flirt Choreography Series with Bitch Sassidy Sundays from 8:00 to 9:00PM October 15 to November 19, 2023


Led by Bitch Sassidy, this movement-focused series is an opportunity to learn to move like a burlesque artist! The power, the sensuality, the grace, cheek, and play. We will focus on empowerment, precision, improvisation, confidence, and a combined physical-emotional build and release. This choreography is not intended for performance, but as a vessel to explore or try out burlesque, to challenge and celebrate your beautiful self!

Pin-Up Bootcamp with Karla Marx Sunday October 15, 22, 29, Nov 15 5:00pm-7:00pm


Join Karla Marx for Pin-Up Bootcamp! This four-session series focuses on everything one would need to become a pin-up. Classes will move through hair, make-up, posing, social media basics, and an optional photoshoot with a professional photographer on the fourth day (additional cost).

Musicality and Burlesque with Ivy La Fleur Sunday November 12, 2023 5:00 to 7:00pm


Performing to a live band can be intimidating. Ivy La Fleur is both a musician and burlesque dancer who will lead this workshop on how to pair movement (both improv and choreographed) to music.

Heels are not necessary. @vogueyyc --- If at anytime a student feels unwell, we require them to not attend class. A student may return to class once they feel well.
