Advanced Drag Performance Workshop

With Michael Twaits


Are you ready to let out your inner drag queen or king? This course is designed for people who already have a background in performance that want to create a unique drag character and routine. The course focuses on leading you through the process of creating your own solo routine – giving you the skills you need to develop a unique character, structure and choreograph a routine and then go on to launch yourself as a professional drag performer.

The course includes master classes on singing, alt performance, lip-sync and comedy – before going on to teach you about the business of cabaret – including how to market yourself, sell your act and get booked by promoters. At the end of the course you will have the opportunity to launch your professional career as a drag performer with a showcase at Finger in the Pie Cabaret at the world famous Royal Vauxhall Tavern.

Finger in The Pie have been at the forefront of UK Cabaret for over 10 years. Our back stage team have won a London Cabaret Award for their support of new talent, and we’ve launched the careers of some of the UK’s most successful cabaret performers including the London Cabaret Award Winning Myra Dubois. We know what makes a successful cabaret routine – and with our experience of creating award winning performance – we are ideally placed to help you develop and launch your new act.


Participants should complete the course with the following:

– Individual solo drag routine
