Improv can be scary…and freestyle 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)
In this all level class, students will learn the basics of freestyle rap. Get out of your head and into your flow!
Students will learn in a safe, nonjudgemental environment where support is our number one rule.
