Paris is a city filled with creative types. The arts have long flourished in the "City of Light" and it's time to learn them for yourself! Take advantage of finest Parisian artisans and learn how to dance like from the 18th century, accessorize like Marie Antoinette or paint a water color of a Paris icon. 

Donning period costumes, follow the lead of an expert instructor as you learn the steps of the classic minuet ballroom dance, letting you experience the fashions and arts of French high society that were popular during Marie Antoinette’s reign. Show off your elegant moves during a partnered performance at the end of class! Or learn a different style of dance, change into traditional red-and-white cancan outfits and learn the moves of this iconic dance during a 2-hour class. Gain insight into the history and traditions of the cancan, practice the basic steps and show off your new dance moves with a 5-minute performance at the end.

Choose from two different themes for your accessory-making class: the fiery colors and flair of the cancan dance or the regal pomp and ceremony of Marie Antoinette's 18th-century royal court. Whichever you choose, let your creative side loose as you craft your own hair jewel, necklace, bracelet or garter. Your instructor will be with you every step of the way to help you get the most out of your creations. If you're more inclined to learn about makeup, hear tips and tricks cancan dancers still use today, or learn the subtleties used by women in the Queen’s royal courts. Your instructor will teach you all the French beauty secrets you need to know.

But if paint and watercolor are more your scene, discover the beauty of Paris through artistic eyes during this 3-hour watercolor painting workshop in Paris. Head to the perfect viewing spot and let your passionate artist guide help you create a watercolor painting of the Eiffel Tower.
