  • Cabaret with Martha Eies 

Cabaret connects an artist to their own delight and provides a forum for personal expression, playful comedy or social commentary. Over the course of 4 classes, you will develop a persona through song and learn to engage and activate a live audience. Improvisation and listening are at the heart of the workshop, as you learn to trust your impulses in concert with feedback.  Expect to be on your feet, taking risks and making discoveries! The final class will culminate with an informal sharing for an invited audience. No previous Cabaret experience necessary.
