About this Class:
Designed for students who have taken our intro class, this 8 week course will continue to develop your hip hop improv skills with exercises designed to expand rhythm, polysyllabic rhymes, and plugging into musical archetypes. Trust your instincts and make bold choices with your hooks, while nailing the fundamentals. Improvisers will continue to hone their scene-work so raps are more focused on exploration and less focused on inventing new information. This class will expand upon scenic heightening and side support, as well as explore several long forms that are designed to isolate skills and develop growth.
