About Lady Velvet Cabaret
Lady Velvet Cabaret burst onto Perth’s burlesque scene in 2009 and since then has continued to flourish and grow with an ever-increasing range of services available. The brainchild of professional performer and entrepreneur Vita Flame, Lady Velvet Cabaret has developed a reputation for its professionalism and well-trained staff, whether they be teachers, hostesses or performers.
Operating from a central dance studio in Subiaco, Lady Velvet Cabaret offers a wide range of dance and burlesque classes for adults including favourites such as hip hop, cabaret, ballet, contemporary, tap dance, jazz, classic burlesque and more. The studio prides itself on offering true beginner classes for adults, welcoming all students even if they’ve never danced before. Instructors are friendly and welcoming, with enrolments accepted at all times of year. The timetable is continually growing, with intermediate and advanced classes available in some styles, supporting students as their skills improve over time. Students are offered regular performance opportunities (completely optional of course) and given a taste of what it’s like to perform at industry standards.
In 2015 LVC joined forces with local photographers to offer popular one-day vintage pinup workshops – giving pinup enthusiasts the chance to participate in regular, themed workshops and photo shoots, with stunning results.
LVC also offers private tuition in dance, piano, voice and even coaching for pageants and pinup parades.
