About The Event

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

This winter we have two 6-week series available and a few specialty classes! All classes are held at Evergreen Spaces in the Fir 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.

Flirt Choreography Series with Bitch Sassidy Sundays from 6:00 to 7:30PM February 5th to March 12th


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!

Sing & Strip Series with Ivy La Fleur Sundays from 8:00 to 9:00PM February 5th to March 12th


This series is for those who want to learn how to combine singing and burlesque for the stage. Ivy La Fleur will move through vocal exercises and techniques to combine these two artforms.
