Teen Cabaret Intensive

Instructor: Liz Rubino - Accompanist: David Bell

Cabaret is a word that has been used to describe a few things, including a “variety show” and the Kander & Ebb musical titled “Cabaret.” In its truest meaning, Cabaret is an art form in and of itself. Its roots are traced back to the 1800s in France at Le Chat Noir, and today, it is a prominent art form in New York City, across the nation, and internationally! Through song delivery and presence, the Cabaret Intensive teaches performers how to be authentic and spontaneous with their audience. Unlike playing a character, you are “yourself” on stage. There is no “fourth wall,” (the audience is very present and in the now) and the material you choose represents you in unique ways. Cabaret is not about singing “the best,” but rather, it's about storytelling and emotional discovery through the music and lyrics. An excellent opportunity for teens who love to sing, perform, and learn how to be their best and most present selves.
