About The Class:

Hip Hop Improv 201

Designed for students who have taken Hip Hop Improv 101, 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 additional long forms that are designed to isolate skills and develop growth.
