The Haus of Kitty Meows is proud to present NYC’s ONLY female dragucation program “LadyQueen University”! This 6 week workshop is designed to turn any lady into a drag queen with tips, techniques and fierceness that will commence with our final class in conjunction with Crimson Kitty’s LadyQueen on Sunday March 20th!

Week 1: February 14th: Welcoming your Inner Drag Diva!
This workshop will help you explore your inner drag queen and unleash her potential! Learn the history of drag and how our female counterparts have weaved their way through time and how ladies of today's pop culture inspire their look from today's drag queens. Also, we will discuss your drag name, persona, character and more! Students will leave knowing their newly crowned name and a better understanding of how drag can empower your everyday life!
Week 2: February 21st: Sync Up! Connect and deliver a fierce lip sync!
Connecting to one's music and delivering a flawless lip sync is crucial to drag. It separates the good drag from the bad! In this course, students will practice to different songs and learn techniques that will enable them to lip sync like a pro! Afterwards we will discuss genres, what songs speak to you, and what you will use in your performance for our draguation ceremony!
Week 3: February 28th: Choreosync! Put some moves in your drag!
In this class, students will learn popular drag moves and pair them up with their newly learned lip syncing skills! This is a dance class where you will feel your fantasy! Students should bring something comfortable to wear. Heels are optional. Wigs are optional.
Week 4: March 6th: Putting It All Together!
In our final studio class, students are encouraged to bring their performance wear (wigs, costumes, music) and perform in a workshop setting designed to maximize the potential of your number. Light critique will be added to make sure you are confident and ready for show day! Other topics covered in this course include how to accept tips, work a crowd and leave an impact entering and exiting a stage!
Week 5: March 13th: Beat That Face! How to paint the perfect drag face
The final class before draguation will be the class that everyone is talking about! In this 3 hour class students will paint their faces with detailed instruction by Crimson Kitty.
