Cabaret is a unique style of singing and musical performance that is known for its intimacy and the emphasis it places on the lyric. It is also an art-form that allows performers of all levels to find a stage. Whether the audience is full of friends and family, or a room full of strangers, that audience becomes the performer’s silent scene partner. The performer’s own connection to and interpretation of the lyric, engages with the intimate audience. In this class, students will bring in songs they are familiar with and work to find their unique and honest take on the lyrics and how to communicate their meaning and intention with an audience. The class will culminate with a performance at a NYC Cabaret venue.
