INTRO TO CABARET MCING

*Please read all info*

Rubyyy Jones’s Intro to Cabaret MCing course is for exploring and developing persona and skills for hosting cabaret, burlesque and drag variety shows! This will be a fun and thorough dive into the responsibilities and expectations of the role of MC, as well as an insider look on the realities of the job, the many possibilities for styles of host, how to protect your stage on the job and more. Rubyyy has had the honour and pleasure of hosting some of the most fabulous events: Victoria and Albert Museum’s Queer and Now (Friday Lates), London Pride, Torture Garden, Hebden Bridge/Belfast/Bristol Burlesque Festival and more!

With each session at 90 mins, and the course running over six sessions - and seven weeks in total as there is break before our final session - this is a course that can be flexible based on the time you have to commit outside the sessions to homework (assigned by Rubyyy) and your own research. Each session will include both notebook based and practical exercises, these are improv based games and tasks that will challenge you to explore your: physicality, stage presence, sense of humour, imagination and all the other important aspects for strengthening your MC voice!
