Improv can be scary…and improvised rapping can be even scarier! SO LET’S TRY IT! Finding your flow and spitting out lyrics is like “…the feeling of freedom, of seeing the light. It’s Ben Franklin with a key & a kite. You see it, right?” (psst…that’s a line from Hamilton…the musical)

NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED. Students will learn in a safe, non-judemental environment where support is our number one rule.
